South African couple Graham and Sheryl Anley were aboard on a yacht with Graham's 9-year-old Jack Russell Rosie on a three month long trip when they hit a reef near East London and were forced to abandon ship!
Here's what National Sea Rescue Institute rep Geoff McGregor said:
"As the incident happened Graham sent a mayday radio distress call and activated the EPIRB (emergency position indicating radio beacon) but they were immediately forced to abandon the yacht."
And while Graham was able to save both his wife and his dog - the order in which he did this will definitely peeve a few people! Most probably peeved the most is his wife!
The reason we say this is because her husband saved his dog first, and then rescued his wife!
Here's how the rep explained it:
"Graham told us he first swam Rosie ashore safely before returning for his wife, whose safety line had become snagged on the steering gear."
We're sure Graham's wife is none too happy that she was the second to be rescued after Graham's dog, but at least her husband was able to save her, as well.
Still we bet someone has a lot of explaining to do!
