4 missing men shore up in Choiseul



FOUR men who were lost at sea for 36 hours have been found at Vagara village in North West Choiseul.

They are from Karaka village in North Vella la Vella.

Vagara villagers rescued the four fishermen on Tuesday evening.

The fishermen went adrift on Monday after they ran out of fuel curing a fishing trip.

They had been fishing near a rafter between Vella la Vella and Choiseul.

A Mr Bernard Muvo from Karaka Village told Island Sun Gizo yesterday family members raised the alarm after the men failed to return on Monday evening.

Muvo said the four fishermen are expected to arrive back at Karaka village sometime today.

He urges people to check, local newspapers, SIBC news or the Solomon Islands Meteorological Service for the latest weather report.

Taro and Gizo police were unaware of this near-tragic incident.
