3 teenagers who were lost at sea for 50 days, and presumed dead, have been rescued. The boys, who had begun to drink seawater because it hadn’t rained in several days, had drifted more than 800 miles. Most amazingly, they were rescued in an area of the Pacific not usually traveled by commercial vessels.
The boys reported having just two coconuts with them when they set out. During their ordeal, they drank rainwater that collected in the boat and ate fish they had caught. Once, they managed to grab a bird that landed on the boat and they devoured that.
