Tromelin Island - abandoned for 15 years
« on: May 14, 2017, 21:50:55 »
Pretty wild story of survival.

Ship carrying slaves crashes on a remote island that's only 1700m long, 700m wide and 7 meters above sea level.

Crew fashions a boat out of wood from the crashed ship and promises the 60 - 80 slaves they'll be right back. 15 years later  a boat finally shows up and rescues the 8 remaining members.
