HUATABAMPO, Mexico (AP) _ Two shark fishermen presumed dead after their boat disappeared 2 1/2 weeks ago were rescued near the Pacific port of Mazatlan.

Jose Humberto Borbon Valenzuela and Jose Macario Romero were found Saturday aboard their boat Don Tomas, drifting off the coast of the northern state of Sinaloa, the government news agency Notimex reported Monday.

The two left Huatabampo on March 23 but apparently ran out of gas. Both were hospitalized, but their conditions were not immediately available.
