Adrift at Sea, for 49 Days

Publish date:

An Indonesian teenager, Aldi Novel Adilang, spent 49 days adrift at sea after his fishing raft broke free from its mooring. He survived by catching fish and was rescued by a passing Panamanian-flagged vessel, 1,200 miles from where he started.

It was the third time his raft had broken free. He now says he is done working on the fish trap.
