Couple stuck in croc-infested swamp rescued after writing ‘HELP’ in mud A young couple stranded in a crocodile-infested swamp in the Northern Territory's Top End have been rescued after writing in the mud next to their bogged car. Colen Nulgit and Shantelle Johnson travelled to the Keep River National Park in the Northern Territory's Top End, near the border with Western Australia, on Sunday. However, their car became bogged, leaving them stuck in the crocodile-infested marshland overnight. Mr Nulgit told CNN he had seen tracks in the area earlier. “These crocodiles that we get here, they're not afraid of humans, they're not afraid of anything," he said.

The exhausted female was lifted to safety by workers using a rope as she lay dripping wet This is the incredible moment a dog was rescued after being found swimming in the Gulf of Thailand - 135 miles from shore.

Workers on an oil rig noticed the pooch's head poking out above the ripples as she paddled through the ocean last Friday.

They called out to the exhausted animal and she swam towards them, taking refuge among the rusty metal bars of the rig.

Workers then lowered a rope down to the brown Aspin dog and pulled her to safety.

‘His eyes were so sad’: Oil rig crew rescues a dog swimming 135 miles off Thailand

‘His eyes were so sad’: Oil rig crew rescues a dog swimming 135 miles off Thailand A dog fought for his life on the high seas.

She stayed on the drilling platform for two nights while a special cage was welded together and staff gave her food and water.

The dog was finally lifted by crane on to another oil vessel passing through the area yesterday. She was taken to vets in Songkhla, southern Thailand, today.

Oil rig worker Khon Vitisak, who saved the animal, said he does not know how she came to be in the ocean but he would like to adopt her if no owner comes forward.

He said: 'We found her trying to swim towards our rig, which is about 135 miles from the shore. Thankfully the sea was quite still because the wind was calm.

12-foot, 1,600-lb shark being tracked in Gulf of Mexico

12-foot, 1,600-lb shark being tracked in Gulf of Mexico A 12-foot-long, 1,600-pound great white shark has been located in the Gulf of Mexico and researchers are tracking its movements in order to better understand the species. According to the non-profit research group OCEARCH, the great white, affectionately nicknamed Miss Costa, was first found swimming in waters off the Florida Panhandle in March and has been moving north ever since. Named after OCEARCH's partner Costa Sunglasses, Miss Costa was first spotted in 2016, swimming near Nantucket, Massachusetts. At the time, she was 12-foot, 5 inches long, but is now estimated to be as long as 14 or 15 feet.

'We just saw her small head but if the ripples were bigger, I think we probably wouldn't have noticed her at all.

'After she made it onto the bars below the rig she didn't cry or bark at all. We looked for a way to help her and in the end, decided to use the rope to tie around her body to lift her up.

'When we first took her onboard her she was depressed and tired from being in the water for a long time . She had lost her body water.

'When he gave her water and minerals her symptoms improved. She started sitting up and walking normally.'

Animal charity volunteers - who are now caring for the dog - do not know if she has an owner of if she was a stray.

Australian divers Richard Harris and Craig Challen return to scene of dramatic Thai cave soccer team rescue

Australian divers Richard Harris and Craig Challen return to scene of dramatic Thai cave soccer team rescue In July last year, Dr Richard Harris and Dr Craig Challen helped save the Wild Boars soccer team from a flooded Thai cave. Nine months on, they have returned to the scene of the dangerous rescue operation.

It is possible she swam from the shore or boarded a boat then jumped off.

Once she reached the rig, workers nursed the dog back to health while they radioed for help and requested a tanker that was returning to shore to stop by and collect her.

She was sent to the animal charity Watchdog Thailand today who took her to be checked over by vets.

They said: 'The boat arrived at 10am and the dog was in good spirits. We took her to the vets to be checked and she was found to be healthy.

'Everybody who played a part in co-coordinating the rescue has done a brilliant job.'
