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!
