Three teenagers arrive in Fiji after Pacific ordeal

Three teenage boys found alive after at least 50 days in a boat in the Pacific Ocean have arrived safely in Fiji.

The boys, from the Tokelau Islands, a New Zealand-administered territory in the South Pacific, had been given up for dead after an unsuccessful search.

The boys survived on coconuts, water they trapped on a tarpaulin and a seabird they managed to catch.

Mike Woolridge reports.
