 Scouring the sea for a missing woman “in pink pyjamas” who fell from a cruise ship found two men stranded near their sinking sailboat.

Both men had to jump into the rough sea one-by-one, before being hoisted into a rescue helicopter, where they were reported as being “healthy”.

Their dramatic rescue came one day after Salvamento Maritimo saved five crew from sailboat Loa Zour.

Flying under an Irish flag, the boat was struggling in “very thick sea, with waves between four-to-six metres high, and winds of 65 knots, which is equivalent to 120 km/h.”

The rescuers said on Facebook that “the rescue was very complex due to the adverse weather conditions” with Loa Zour “totally adrift”, in stormy weather, 85 miles northwest of A Coruña.

When Lucky Bird's crew were rescued yesterday, Salvamento's emergency chopper had been working on another operation, looking for a woman reported to have fallen into the sea from a cruise liner in high winds near Majorca.

The cruise ship had left Cannes on Friday and was due to dock in Palma, Majorca, early on Saturday.

However it turned around at about 8.30am when the captain announced they were going to search for a missing woman.

Families said she had last been seen wearing pink pyjamas on her balcony at around 1am on Saturday morning and told how her heartbroken family warned she couldn't swim.
