Sailors on a sinking boat at Swansea in Australia rang for help before getting through to coastguards in Swansea in Wales.
Three crew onboard the stricken boat managed to make a 'Mayday' call moments before it capsized on a huge inland lake at Swansea, near Sydney.
But their desperate call for help was picked up 12,000 miles away - by officers at Swansea Coastguard station.
Baffled coastguards couldn't work out the man's location when the call came through at 7.15am yesterday.
A spokesman said: "The gentleman kept taking about a Lake Macquarie and said he was between two headlands waving a lifejacket.
"We asked him what country he was calling from and he said Australia.
"We checked our charts and realised he had come though to the wrong Swansea.
"The coastguards in South Wales responded to the emergency by urgently passing it on to their counterparts in New South Wales.
"We've got the telephone numbers of all the rescue coordination centres so we called the Australian one who were able to rescue him.
"There are a few Swanseas across the world, in America, Canada. It shows how small the world is.
"The three sailors were rescued unharmed by a lifeboat."
