How an Indonesian teenager who survived 49 days adrift at sea was rescued – YouTube

A teenager has been rescued after surviving for 49 days adrift at sea in a fishing hut. Aldi Novel Adilang, 19, from Sulawesi in Indonesia, works as a lamp keeper on a floating fish trap, known locally as rompong, 125km out at sea. In mid-July, heavy winds snapped its moorings and it drifted to the ocean. The teenager had a few days’ worth of supplies and survived by catching fish and cooking them by burning wood from his hut; he sipped seawater through his clothing to minimise his salt intake. The Indonesian consulate in Osaka said a Panamanian-flagged vessel, MV Arpeggio, picked him up in waters off Guam on 31 August – more than a month and a half later.

GREENSBURG — Randy Bachman’s most vivid memory of Pittsburgh is the time a fan threw a cup of mustard at him then ran off with his wah-wah pedal.

Let’s give Bachman something more positive to remember us by, when the Guess Who/Bachman Turner Overdrive star heads back our way Tuesday to headline the Palace Theatre in Greensburg.

Bachman has been performing his classic-rock hits “Takin’ Care of Business,” “No Sugar Tonight,” “No Time” and “Let It Ride,” plus cuts from his creatively done “By George.”
