An Indonesian teenager has survived 49 days adrift across the Pacific Ocean.

The boy who worked on a fishing hut 125 kilometres off the Indonesian coast disappeared due to a storm in July.

Aldi Novel Adilang is believed to have survived by filtering seawater through his clothes and catching fish.

He has been reunited with his family after being picked up by a Panamanian vessel.
