Melbourne: Indian Naval officer Abhilash Tomy, who was badly injured while participating in the Golden Globe Race, has been rescued, the Indian Navy said on Monday.

Tomy received help from the French vessel Osiris in the Indian Ocean on Monday. Osiris launched zodiac boats to reach Tomy to administer first aid and give him water before evacuation. He was taken in a stretcher to the boat.

Tomy, representing India in the Golden Globe Race (GGR) on an indigenously built sailing vessel 'Thuriya', had suffered a back injury on Friday after his Yacht was hit by a vicious storm with 14-metre -high waves mid way in the southern Indian Ocean.

His location was traced approximately 1,900 nautical miles from Perth, Australia and about 2,700 nautical miles from Cape Comorin.

The area which could be treacherous during poor weather conditions was known to cause damage to vessels similar to that suffered by Tomy's yacht.

Earlier, the race organisers said that Tomy had sent a message saying 'ACTIVATED EPIRB. CANT WALK.MIGHT NEED STRETCHER'.

A subsequent message read 'CAN MOVE TOES.FEEL NUMB. CANT EAT OR DRINK. TOUGH 2 REACH GRAB BAG'.

The vessel was located by an Indian Navy aircraft on Sunday.
