The story said: The two men had embarked on a one-day trip to sea which became an almost month-long ordeal…The boat drifted for more than 20 days and more than 500 miles with the two men reporting that they survived by eating dried fish and sipping melted ice from their cooler… They were brought home by Food For The Poor.
