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 laterĀ  a boat finally shows up and rescues the 8 remaining members.
