Five divers are back on dry land after disappearing during a diving excursion off the island of Bali last week, CNN reports. Two others are not as lucky.

Fishermen spotted the survivors grabbing a coral reef yesterday. Rough seas made it impossible for the fishermen to reach them, but a rescue helicopter and boat were called in to pull them to safety.

The divers went missing Friday, failing to surface at their meeting spot. The group was made up of Japanese tourists and two instructors.

The body of a sixth diver was found today, and the search continues for the sole missing woman, authorities said.
