Taipei, June 24 (CNA) Chang Hui-er (張蕙而), the 17-year-old female student who
was rescued earlier this month after drifting more than 20 hours in the sea off northern Taiwan coasts, visited her savior in Penghu Wednesday to show her gratitude.
Chang was reported missing when the inflatable banana boat she and friends were on board capsized in the sea off Shanzhi, New Taipei in the evening of June 8.
The recreational activity of the young vacationers turned into panic because for hours the rescue teams of the Coast Guard and the National Airborne Service Corps could not find Chang.
While a life jacket had kept her afloat, Chang was lucky to be spotted by the Yita No. 68, a fishing boat passing by. [FULL STORY]
