Teens Rescued After Being Stranded At Sea For 50 Days!!

Filed under: Inspiration

This is an amazing story!

Three teenagers were rescued after spending 50 days adrift at sea in a small rowing boat.

The teens, Edward Nasau, 14, and Samu Perez and Filo Filo, both aged 15, were found Wednesday northeast of Fiji by a tuna vessel that had spotted them.

The boys survived on nothing but coconuts, raw fish, water trapped by a tarpaulin, and even a seabird that had landed in their boat.

One of fishermen who found them said, "In the physical sense they looked very physically depleted." but said that mentally, their spirits were very high.

The boys had been presumed dead and earlier this month, their families held a memorial service for them.

The fisherman added, "There's a lot of living left in them."

Wow. Unbelievable. So glad they were found alive and well.

Adrift Dick Van Dyke Was Rescued By Porpoises!

Holy shiz!

Iconic actor Dick Van Dyke recently revealed that while he was longboarding at the beach one day, he fell asleep and woke up to find himself drifting out to sea!

However, he was lucky enough to get some unexpected help!

He explains:

"I woke up out of sight of land… and I started paddling with the swells and I started seeing fins swimming around me and I thought, 'I'm dead!' They turned out to be porpoises [and] they pushed me all the way to shore. I'm not kidding."

That's seriously unbelievable!

We guess we forget that animals sometimes just innately understand things that we wouldn't expect them to - like someone in need of help!

Hopefully that will teach him to stick closer to shore - or to not nap in the ocean! LOLz!
