Three men found on ship’s rudder after 11 day voyage
Three men have been found sat on the rudder of a ship after an 11-day journey.
The ship had arrived in Las Palmas, Gran Canaria, from Nigeria's largest city Lagos - a journey of more than 2,700 nautical miles - according to data from maritime tracking sites.
A photo shared by the Spanish coastguard shows their feet less than a metre above the water, as they sit on the rudder at the oil tanker's stern.
The men were taken to hospital at the tanker's destination in Gran Canaria and treated for moderate dehydration.
