ANOTHER tsunami survivor found at sea-2 weeks later-check out the raft


In this photo released by the Arab-based container vessel Al Yamamah, a raft carrying tsunami survivor, Indonesian Ari Afrizal, drifts on the sea Sunday, Jan. 9, 2005 before being rescued and brought to the West Port, outskirts of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Ari, 21, says he drifted on the Indian Ocean for two weeks, living on coconuts that he pried open with his teeth while floating on pieces of wood, then a broken boat, and finally a fishing raft. (AP Photo/Al Yamamah, HO)


NO real news story just the photo

5. Gilligan would have screwed it up somehow
by accidentally setting it on fire or some other screw up..
