纽西兰一潜水员海上飘游3天获救

Diver Survives Three Days in Ocean

A former New Zealand navy diver left adrift at sea for three days survived by eating crayfish and sea slugs after he became separated from friends while diving near an island off the country's coast.

Robert Hewitt, 38, was suffering hypothermia and severe dehydration when he was found in mist and rain by former navy colleagues who joined police divers after an air search was called off, New Zealand Press Association reported.

"This defies survivability, it's bloody awesome," said police search and rescue Senior Sergeant Bruce Johnson.

Hewitt was found wearing only the bottom of his wetsuit and a yellow catch bag containing the remains of the crayfish and sea slugs that he had eaten during the ordeal, NZPA reported.

Johnson said the diver may have been protected by the thickness of his navy-issue divesuit, and was alert and "talked non stop" when rescued.

The alarm was raised Sunday when Hewitt, the older brother of a former All Black rugby player, failed to surface from a dive off Mana Island, north of Wellington on the country's North Island.

一位新西兰人几天前与朋友们一起在一个小岛附近海域进行潜水游戏时不幸失踪。在经过了长达3天的海上漂流后终于获救。

据路透社2月8日报道,此人名叫罗伯特·休伊特,现年38岁,以前曾经是新西兰海军的一名潜水员。几天前,他与朋友一起在位于该国北岛惠灵顿市以北的马纳岛附近下海潜水后失踪。后来,警方根据报案在雨雾交加的海上发现了休伊特。当时,休伊特的身体出现了体温过低和严重脱水的症状。当地警方负责搜寻与救援工作的高级警官布鲁斯·约翰逊表示:“这是在对人类的生存能力提出挑战,真的是很了不起。”

报道还说,休伊特在获救时所穿的紧身潜水服只剩下了下半身,而随身携带的一个黄色收纳袋里满是小龙虾等的残渣剩骨,他就是靠吃这些东西才得以在海上极端恶劣的生存环境下死里逃生的。据警方透露,休伊特所穿的海军专用的潜水服显得比较厚,这或许在一定程度上对其身体起到了保护作用,同时他在获救的整个过程中始终保持警觉并且不停地与人交谈。

警方是在星期天得到消息的,当休伊特——这位前国家橄榄球队队员的长兄——没能从马纳岛附近的潜水后浮出水面时。马纳岛位于国家北岛的惠灵顿市以北。
