He told newsmen a rambling tale about three terrible days of shipwreck, thirst, delirium, death, hwger, heat and blinding glare ot sifn, sea and sky. He and his companions— Russell Bradford, 4«, of Hunlinglon Beach, his mother's slepfalher, and Alvin Mailman, 57, of nearby Santa Ana, Bradford's friend— set out for a month's fishing cruise off Mexico last Tuesday. Bradford was a plastering contractor, Hartman a hod carrier. After setting out from Newport Erich in their 36-foot boat, they encountered heavy swells. They tried riding at anchor that night. "The sea anchor was pulling on the boat," the boy, mumbling and dazed from sedatives, told newsmen. "Two big swells picked up the boat and pulled the bottom out ... "Grandpa (Bradford) said to cut the raft, loose . . ." ,^J'hc three fishermen got aboard a ' six-by-lhrcc-fot raft of balsa wood and cork. Its bottom consisted only of rope netting through which a few timbers were looped, and water sloshed through the bottom continually. They tried to attract several passing vessels Wednesday, their first day on the raft.
