Dog Rescued from Tanker

May 6, 2002
At last, the dog-stranded-at-sea episode that has been obsessing Hawaiian animal lovers has ended -- and ended well. Forgea, the white terrier mix who was inadvertently left onboard a crippled fuel tanker in the middle of the Pacific in April when Norwegian Star crew and officers rescued Indonesians left onboard, arrived in Honolulu last week via tugboat. “Insiko,” who was host of his first press conference, wore a red flower lei and, presumably, did not speak about the ordeal. The dog spent more than three weeks on the abandoned tanker before being rescued.
