After that, they survived on rainwater they mute, floating coconuts they pulled from the ocean, “and our faith in God because we pray day and night time,” Nanjikana told the Solomon Islands Broadcasting Corporation.
With gas dwindling, they had been by some means ready to roar paddles and canvas to originate a makeshift mast and cruise. The wind propelled them within the commonplace route of Papua Modern Guinea and they had been ready to plot the attention of a fisherman.
The two men are quickly staying with a native in Papua Modern Guinea whereas officials arrange for them to net encourage dwelling, Mary Walenenea of the Solomon Islands Ministry of International Affairs and External Commerce told The Guardian.
