MIRACLE AT SEA

Adrift in the Pacific for five months in a tiny boat, five fishermen reached the limits of human endurance. This is their story.

At the point of despair, one wrote a farewell message:

To My Beloved Wife,

The rainwater that we had is about used up. We have no food. We have suffered so much that I believe, with death, God will finally allow us to rest….

I only know one thing—that if it’s possible to love after life, I will love you….

I no longer have the strength to go on.

But they did go on, for three more months.
