By Around the Web

(WCNC) Three castaways were rescued on Thursday after a U.S Navy aircraft spotted the word ‘help’ spelled out with palm leaves on the beach of a remote Pacific Island, according to the U.S. Coast Guard.

The three men, who were not identified, were reported missing by family members on Monday when they failed to catch a flight on the Micronesian island of Chuuk, according to U.S. Coast Guard spokeswoman, Melissa McKenzie.

The group reportedly were taking a skiff from between two Micronesian islands when something went awry.
