The May issue of GQ features an incredible story of three young boys surviving 51 days lost at sea with almost no supplies.

There were, as it turned out, three people on the boat. Three boys. Two were 15 years old and the third was 14. They were naked and emaciated. Their skin was covered with blisters. Their tongues were swollen. They had no food, no water, no clothing, no fishing gear, no life vests, and no first-aid kit. They were close to death. They had been missing for fifty-one days.

It’s an amazing story, I only wish it were longer.
