    Apparently, according to some reports, they collected rainwater to drink.

    Wow, have to file that under pretty lucky.

    I hope they gave them somethings to replenish the vitamins with the water because water alone when dehydrated is not good for the body.

    I've been watching this story and I call shenanigans. They don't appear to be in any state one would expect by being exposed to the elements in the ocean for 25 days. It's a little too unbelievable.

    Even if they drank rainwater, where did they get food? The fish stored in the cooler would have rotted very quickly in searing heat. Plus, they ate chunks of raw fish for 25 days without getting any stomach problems? Seems sketchy.
