Relatives of three teenage boys rescued after 50 days adrift at sea are all smiles -- and a few tears of joy.
The boys were found in the South Pacific after surviving on coconuts and a seagull they managed to catch -- and by drinking rain water.
After holding a memorial service two weeks ago, convinced the boys were dead, relatives in New Zealand are overjoyed.
(SOUNDBITE) (English) RELATIVE, MALU WILLIAMS, SAYING:
"I'm happy that's why I'm crying and I need to dance."
The boys drifted about 800 miles across an empty and little travelled area of the Pacific Ocean before they were found.
