A fortuitous encounter by an unlikely vessel led to the sea rescue of four fishermen off the coast of Mexico this weekend.
The three Americans and one Mexican national were fishing on a charter boat off the coast of Baja California Thursday May 12 when their boat sank and they took to an emergency life raft, according to Fox 5.
At least a day later the crew on board a tug boat hauling a piece of the space shuttle for an exhibit at California Science Center of Los Angeles spotted the orange inflatable.
The men arrived in San Diego on Sunday morning and it was unclear in press reports just exactly how long they survived at sea.
