2. Poon Lim
When the merchant ship he was on sunk, Lim survived for four months adrift on one of the ship’s rafts. Lucky for Lim, when the ship was going down he managed to find a few cans of food and water to sustain him for a little while. His story is one of the most impressive mainly because of how well he come out of it. With no serious injuries other than severe dehydration, Lim came out of the experience relatively unscathed but with a hatred for raw fish which he lived off for 133 days.
