Mother and daughter from the US are being rescued after a boat carrying them broke off their home in Thailand.
The two had been rescued in October last year when they tried to cross the Pacific Ocean in a dinghy after being trapped in Thailand’s Bali.
Now they are being helped by the rescue coalition known as the Mother and Child Rescue Coalition, which is helping with the rescue.
The group was founded in 2016 by two sisters, who said they wanted to find a way to make a difference.
The sisters have become active members of the rescue effort, volunteering in Thailand and Malaysia, and helping with other rescue efforts in the region.
“We wanted to do something for the people who are living in these conditions, and to help them,” said Amanda Lauer, a mother from New York, who joined the group.
The couple, who are from Pennsylvania, were rescued in November by a boat and set sail for Australia after the dinghy broke off.
The pair had been stranded in Thailand for more than three months, when they got word that they were on a boat heading towards Australia.
“It was like a movie,” Ms Lauer said.
“The boat pulled in the next day, and we had just left a beach.
I thought, ‘Wow, it’s going to be a long trip.'”
The couple decided to try to cross in a boat, but a motorboat pulled up next to the boat and it turned out to be an overloaded cargo boat, so they had to swim across the river to another boat.
They had to jump in and out of the boat several times, but eventually managed to reach the shore of a remote island.
They said they were happy they were able to get to safety.
“Our boat was loaded with food, blankets, water and supplies,” Ms Pendergast said.
The Mother and Daughter Rescue Coalition is helping in the rescue efforts of people stranded on boats.
They are currently using a boat to rescue people stranded in Indonesia, Malaysia and Thailand.
It is also trying to help in the search for a missing US family from Australia.
The Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade has said the family is still missing and it is “urgently seeking information from their family”.
The organisation has also set up a Twitter account to help find their family.
