The Indian Navy released a footage of Tomy’s vessel after he was traced by an Indian Navy Reconnaissance aircraft and rescued by the French vessel Osiris.
He was brought out on a stretcher as he had suffered a severe back injury.
The 39-year-old was competing in the 2018 Golden Globe Race – a 30,000-mile solo yachting competition that does not allow the use of modern technology – when his boat hit a storm on Friday more than 3,000 kilometers off the coast of Australia.
