Three teenage boys who were rescued Wednesday from a tiny boat 240 miles from land after they became lost in the South Pacific for more than 50 days were being examined today by a doctor in Fiji.

Apunas Sakamuri, a spokesman for the police department in Suva, Fiji, said the three were admitted to Suva Public Hospital and then released to a private doctor identified as Dr. Rosemary Mitchell, according to a report at CNN.

Filo Filo, 15, and his cousins - Etueni Nasau, 14, and Samu Pelesa, 15 - were famished, dehydrated, exhausted and sunburned when a crewmember on a fishing boat two miles away spotted their 12-foot metal boat and alerted his superior.

The rescue, which came two weeks after hundreds turned out to mourn them, elated their friends and relatives.
