Remember Tom Hanks getting stranded on the island for God knows how long? Remember how he tried hard to save his sanity by making himself a volleyball friend? Can you imagine how awful that would be?
Adam Jones went through the same thing. He was stranded on an island for 9 long years. And how did he get saved? Technology, people! Adam was saved thanks to Google Earth. Here is Adam’s story.
1. Adam and his friends went on a trip
Back in 2006, Adam and two of his friends decided to go on a trip to Hawaii. They wanted to take their boat and go there by crossing the Atlantic Ocean and the Panama Canal.
Everything went fine until they got stuck in a huge storm which damaged the electric equipment and their boat. Two of his friends went overboard and Adam was left unconscious and drifted in the ocean for 17 days.
