5 Japanese divers found alive, but 2 still missing off Bali, Indonesia

Indonesia, Bali: Five Japanese scuba divers were found alive Monday clinging to a coral reef in rough waters off the Indonesian resort island of Bali three days after they went missing, officials said.

Fishermen spotted the divers, among seven women who went missing Friday, some 20 kilometers from where they set off for a diving expedition but could not rescue them because the waves were too high.

But one of them was later rescued by a helicopter, which also dropped food to the stranded divers. The four others were being picked up by a rescue boat and will be taken to Semawang beach in southern Bali.
