MORONI, Comoros (AP)  Doe Cyrille and his crew searched for hours in
crashing winds and waves up to 16 feet (5 meters) high for any sign of
Yemenia Flight 626. Then they spotted a girl impossibly clinging to a
piece of debris.

A member of the rescue team threw a life preserver to the girl, but the
waters were too rough for her to catch it.

One of the sailors, Libouna Maturaffe Soulemane  who had completed a
rescue course six months earlier  jumped into the sea with a flotation
device and reached out to Bahia.

"When I saw the girl, I was not afraid to dive in," Soulemane told The
Associated Press. "She was calm ... She knew what she was doing," said
Soulemane. "The girl is very courageous."

The crew on board Sima Com 2 threw the life buoy again towards Soulemane
and the girl and pulled them to the boat
