American Teen Possibly Stranded in the Indian Ocean

According to,
Abby Sunderland, 16, of California sent out a distress signal over the Indian Ocean thursday. The teen was attempting to sail around the world without stopping. The teen has been out at sea since January and already has had to make two stops in Cape Town, South Africa in April. Recent electronic signals have been captured saying Sunderland's ship was traveling at about one mile per hour, meaning it was floating, not sailing. Her family states that she has all the nescessary equipment to survive a crisis situation like this, and Australian rescue ships are only two days away from reaching the teen. Her family also believes she is a very capable sailor, and are keeping in positive spirits.
