Mid-ocean delivery for hungry rowers

Two hungry rowers had extra supplies dropped in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean by the British coastguard in Falmouth, England.

The rowers, Matthew and Christian Cleghorn, lost most of their rations when the boat, Papa Delta, was swamped in heavy seas.

A nearby yacht, limping from damage from the same storm, was asked to come to the aid of the rowers, who are competing in a trans-Atlantic race.
