Indonesian teen rescued after 49 days adrift at sea

He was eventually rescued by a Panama-registered ship, MV Arpeggio, and handed over to Japanese authorities on September 7.

Speaking to Reuters from his family home in Manado on Tuesday (September 25), Adilang described how squeezing sea water from his shirt, reading the Bible and singing spiritual songs kept him alive during his time adrift.

He said his solar-powered radio allowed him to provide information to passing ships, however ten had sailed past before the MV Arpeggio stopped to help.
