Boys adrift in a tinny for 50 days survive!

3 teenagers from the Tokelau islands have been missing at sea since early October. Their families had given up hope for their return before a New Zealand tuna fishing boat picked them up off the coast of Fiji on Wednesday afternoon, some 1400km south-west from where they pushed off.

Listen to this 3min report – about the two 15-year-olds and a 14-year-old who survived 50 days in a tinny on rainwater, some coconuts and one raw seabird (!!).

I really like that they wouldn’t spill on how they caught the ‘seabird’…. amazing story.
