  1. Sailor, Presumed Dead, Found Adrift

    His family had planned his funeral. But Ron Ingraham held on. The Hawaiian fisherman spent 12 days at sea living on raw fish until the U.S. Coast Guard rescued him. The ordeal began when Ingraham radioed mayday Nov. 27. On Dec. 1, the Coast Guard called off the search. Then came an 8-second call this week, about 60 miles off the Honolulu coast. On land, Ingraham received a cigarette, a lei and an emergency radio beacon with positioning – so he would never go missing again.
