HARRIS, SCOTLAND - MAY 15: A general view across to Luskintyre beach on May 15, 2014 in Harris, Scotland. The Isles of Lewis and Harris lie in the Outer Hebrides and make up the largest island in Scotland and stretch for 100 miles. The Isles of Harris and Lewis will vote along with the rest of Scotland in the referendum on whether Scotland should be an independent country on September 18, 2014. Harris and Lewis's economy is a mix of traditional businesses like fishing, weaving and farming, with more recent influence of tourism, the popularity of Harris and Lewis has grown steadily over recent years.

An Australian couple was rescued soon after they wrote out “HELP” in the sand. No, this is not out of a movie! 

Talk about convenient! A couple from Australia ended up shipwrecked on a deserted island, appropriately named Avoid Island. They decided to write “HELP” in the sand using big letters in the hopes that a rescue team saw it and came down to save them.

The couple was on a fishing trip when a storm brought waves close to 17-feet high, throwing them overboard and washing their boat along the shore with them. They were stranded on the beach for about 8 hours. Once rescue helicopters flew by and saw their SOS, they were quickly freed.

Listen to what Maney, Roy and LauRen had to say about it!

Are you with Maney? Do you think this situation is totally movie-ish? Let us know @themrlshow!
