The accident occurred on Tuesday in the southern coast of the state of Alagoas in Brazil , 2 miles from the coast, across to the municipality of Barra de São Miguel, as reported by the Air Support Center in the region.
The three castaways, two women and a man, held to the top of the case of beer, made of Styrofoam, and floated adrift for a few hours according to various sources, until they were rescued by a helicopter from the militarized Police which was doing a routine patrol.
Two ships that were passing by, one of a fisherman, assisted in the rescue of the castaways, who did not need to be hospitalized because they didn't present severe injuries.
