Photos: Davis-Monthan Airmen rescue injured sailors

Rescuers from southern Arizona reached and stabilized two critically injured Chinese sailors whose boat sunk in the Pacific Ocean, an official at Davis-Monthan Air Force Base said Sunday.

A Venezuelan fishing boat found the sailors floating in a raft Friday afternoon after their vessel sank off the coast of Mexico, said Sarah Schwennesen, spokeswoman at the Tucson base. She says the sailors were badly burned in either a fire or explosion. —AP
