Adrift for 49 days in the Pacific Ocean, Aldi Adilang survived straining sea water through his clothes, eating fish and reading his Bible
9-24-18, Newsweek -- Nineteen year old Aldi Adilang has worked and lived on a floating 'hut' for three years lighting the lamps which attract fish in the water. Every month, someone comes to the hut bringing him food and supplies; the hut-like fish trap floats on the surface of the sea and is only supported by buoys and attached to the seabed by a long rope. However, on July 14, 2018 high winds tore the worn rope and rendered his buoys useless sending him adrift with limited supply of water, gas and fuel.
After he ran out of the cooking gas, he burned the wooden fences to make a fire for cooking fish. He drank by filtering the salt out of the sea water with his clothes. He said that in his darkest moments, he remembered his parents advice to pray and he consulted his Holy Bible.
On August 31, 2018 Aldi saw the carrier Arpeggio and waved a cloth and turned on his radio signal, hoping the captain would see and hear him. The captain saw him and turned the cargo ship around circling him four times. The waves were high, the rope thrown to Aldi did not reach him and he was weak from his ordeal at sea so the rescue was very difficult. However, while the wind and waves rocked him, Aldi was able to jump into the sea grabbing the rope; the ship’s crew managed to catch his hand pulling him aboard.
Aldi was handed over to Indonesian consulate officials in Japan and flew home to Manado, Indonesia, on September 8, 2018. The Indonesian consul general in Osaka, Mirza Nurhidayat, told The Jakarta Post he was in good health. More here
