Five of seven missing Japanese divers rescued

Posted: Updated:

(CNN) - Five Japanese scuba divers are back on dry land after a three-day ordeal.

Fishermen spotted the women grabbing a coral reef off the resort island of Bali. Rough seas made it impossible for the fishermen to pick up the divers. But a rescue helicopter later rescued one of them. A boat picked up the other four.

The divers went missing on Friday when they failed to surface at the agreed-upon spot. Two instructors who accompanied the divers are still unaccounted for.
