Vieux Fort fisher Arthur ‘Six’ Collymore, who was lost at sea with his crew member Peter’ Mawiyan’ Samuel, has praised the South African couple who rescued them.
Collymore said the couple, Peter and Theresa, whom he now refers to as ‘the Apostle Peter’ and ‘Mother Theresa,’ were ‘more than good’ to him and his friend.
The veteran fisher and his companion left Vieux Fort on Wednesday, October 27, 2021, around 6:00 am for a fishing expedition aboard the vessel ‘Aqua Man.’ They returned home on Friday, October 29, 2021, around 4:00 am.
Collymore said they had water, food, and safety gear on board, including life jackets they were wearing when they left.
And after catching some fish and noticing that bad weather was brewing, the duo decided to head back home.
However, Collymore told St Lucia Times that a malfunctioning GPS device diverted them from their intended course, and they eventually concluded that they were lost.
