    Teens Missing in South Pacific for 50 Days Found Alive

    I smell a movie in the works.....

    Teens Missing in South Pacific for 50 Days Found Alive - FoxNews.com

    Three teenagers who had been missing in the South Pacific for 50 days and presumed dead have been found alive.

    Samuel Perez and Filo Filo, both 15, and Edward Nasau, 14, were dehydrated, sunburned and very hungry when rescued after being spotted by a tuna boat, according to The Daily Telegraph.

    The crew of the tuna boat saw them frantically waving for help Wednesday afternoon -- 800 miles from where they started. The three boys disappeared October 5 while attempting to row in their small aluminum boat between two islands in the New Zealand territory of Tokelau.

    They were presumed dead after an extensive search involving the New Zealand air force. A memorial service attended by about 500 people was held last month on the boys' home island of Atafu.

    The boys survived by drinking rainwater and eating a seagull that landed on their boat, according to the Telegraph. They had started to drink sea water because it hasn't rained in the past few nights.

    Something about this seems wildly implausible. Three boys survived for 50 days on one raw seagull and rainwater?
    People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

    Unless it was a huge seagull. They can get pretty big in the pacific. Although even if they rationed it, the meat would be rotting and unsafe to eat... unless they used salt water to preserve it. But then that would rapidly increase the rate of dehydration.

    I don't know either.

    Some news sources also say they had some coconuts.

    I could see a few raw fish and a couple dozen coconuts, but something is missing from this story, and I'm afraid it's believability.

    All though there was this story once about a guy who fed a multitude of over 5,000 men, plus uncounted women and children on only two small fish and five loaves of bread.

    So this is either another miracle of Biblical proportion or something else might be at work here.

    I think either one or more of these kids will come clean or we'll have to wait for the movie to come out.

    An extremely intelligent and funny post Councilman, I know sometimes we don't agree politically, but you gave me a chuckle here, and for that, I thank you.

    He said that the boys survived by catching fish and eating a seagull that had landed on their boat.

    And the speculation on my part: they probably had fishing gear to begin with and had some skill in that department

    I read about this MANY years ago. Found it on the internet.

    It is possible, but I'd imagine there is more to the story than what the boys are saying.
