Ferry survivors found

From Radio New Zealand -

Fourteen people found alive off the coast of Indonesia nine days after their ferry sank in a storm have reached land.

The survivors were picked up by a cargo ship 500km from where the ferry sank.

They spent more than a week drifting in a life raft, surviving on biscuits, seaweed and rain water. One man died soon after being rescued

The ferry sank in the Java Sea with more than 600 aboard after it capsized in mountainous seas around midnight on December 29.

About 235 people have now been rescued.
