Sweden: Castaway Russian sailor airlifted to safety off Swedish coast 

A solo Russian sailor travelling from Stockholm to Spain was rescued by the coastguard off the eastern Swedish coast near the island of Stora Lundskar, Friday, after he became stranded on a small rock at sea.

The Swedish Coastguard raised the alarm on Wednesday after there was a failure to contact the sailor's vessel.

While stranded the sailor utilised moss to create a 'HELP' sign on the small rock he was found on.

The man was brought to a nearby hospital in Linkoping, and is said to be in a good condition.
