Fifty miles (80 kilometers) south of the Crimean port of Kerch, the crew boarded a woman who was swept out to the open sea while surfing.

According to preliminary data, the Russian surfer had been at sea for an entire day.

A rescue ship delivered the victim to the port of Taman, where the lady was passed to doctors. Thankfully, the surfer’s condition was described as satisfactory.

Earlier in August, Odessa frontier guards rescued a stalled holiday cruiser. To their surprise, the former president of the Moldavian Republic, Igor Smirnov, was in the boat. Igor Smirnov was in office from 1991 to 2011.
