MERSING: Thoughts of his wife and three young children kept Royal Malaysian Air Force Mej Aundrey Smith, 43, going as he fought rough seas to swim to safety after the boat carrying him and five other air force personnel capsized on Sunday.  

Mej Smith and his colleagues, who are with the RMAF’s Special Forces team based in Banting, Selangor, were in the waters near Pulau Sibu off Mersing in Johor, looking for a place for training when their boat capsized at 10.30am.
