Animal Planet TV Crew Finds Castaway While Filming Off The Coast Of Australia

TV shows love to send crews out to remote locations where few humans dare to tread and film the whole experience, because audiences who are stuck at home eat that extreme travel stuff up.

The crews sent out on these shoots expect to find adventure, hardship and plenty of amazing scenery to film, but they certainly don't expect to find an actual castaway while filming!

A documentary crew shooting an episode of Animal Planet's “River Monsters” off the coast of Australia came across a strange sight as they neared an island- a frantic man named Termini yelling “give me something to drink!”

Termini swam out to the crew's boat and happily drank a bottle of water, then told the crew that he's an amateur fisherman who got lost after he left his boat to look for oysters.

He'd been stranded for 60 hours, suffered from heat stroke and swore he would die alone on the island before the crew came along.

The lucky castaway made a full recovery, and the footage was left in the episode so Termini can prove to his friends and family that his incredible rescue story is totally true.
