Teen sailor Abby Sunderland back in radio contact
The Airbus dispatched to search for 16-year-old solo sailor Abby Sunderland has found her, and her yacht, in the Indian Ocean. We're still not exactly sure why she activated the original distress signals, although she did have problems with the yacht's engine on Thursday. Abby is back in radio contact, and due to be picked up by a fishing vessel tomorrow. We wonder if her parents will ground her for making everyone worry? Sydney Morning Herald
