Amazing that an 80 year old lady managed to survive ditching in the sea, deploy and get in a life raft and hang on till being rescued by a passing ship.
The couple were/are friends of my cousin who's an ATC in Alderney.

Sadly seems like the search had been called off after 3 hours for the gentleman. The Wife has been recovered though and released from hospital.
