A Three Hour Tour

Kiribati couple survives 35 days adrift at sea after their boat stalled during a voyage from Tarawa to an outer island. The husband and wife drifted over 1,000 miles to the west, subsisting on rainwater and raw fish, before a tuna boat rescued them near Kapingamarangi Atoll. They drifted on the open water from December 30 to February 2.

They are currently in Chuuk, awaiting repatriation to Kiribati on a Continental Micronesia flight.
