Indonesian teenager lamp keeper survives 49 days adrift at sea on a floating hut.

An Indonesian teenager spent 49 days at sea in a fishing hut before he was spotted by a Panamanian-flagged vessel.

In July, Aldi Novel Adilang, 19, was working as a lamp keeper, lighting lamps to attract fish to the floating fishing hut moored off shore from the Indonesian island of Sulawesi, when the line tethering him snapped in a vicious storm.

Adilang was then set adrift, carried over 1,500 miles by the tides until he was rescued off the coast of the U.S. territory of Guam.

The teen survived by catching fish to eat and drinking seawater that he filtered through his clothing to reduce the amount of salt in it.

He said more than 10 ships passed him by during his time at sea before one saw him and stopped on Aug. 31.

Darn, I wasted all that money on a watermaker when I could have just bought a bunch of T-shirts!
