PARIS: The French coast guard has res­cued a Pol­ish sailor in the In­dian Ocean who says he spent seven months with only his cat for company in a bro­ken-down boat. In­ves­ti­ga­tors are seek­ing to piece to­gether the itin­er­ary of the 54-year-old who says he took to the sea in a makeshift ves­sel from the Co­moros Is­lands in May with the aim of reach­ing South Africa. He was plucked from the waves well off-course, near the French is­land of Re­union, on Sun­day af­ter be­ing spot­ted by a yacht crew. The man and his cat sur­vived on half a packet of soup per day as well as what he caught by fish­ing. – AFP
