Young survivor rescued from the sea in 1961 tells her horrifying tale
In 1961 a freighter saw her in the waters below, almost dead – waving towards the vessel for help. She was a young girl found in the middle of the ocean, drifting through the waters on her tiny cork float, frail, dehydrated and sunburnt. She was rescued and rushed to the nearby hospital for treatment.
But the question that hovered in everyone’s mind was how an 11-year-old child got lost in the Atlantic Ocean. 49 years after the incident, the young survivor whose name was Tere Duperrault Fassbender wrote a book “Alone: Orphaned on the Ocean” which told the shocking story of her survival which will leave you astounded.
