Reporter: How relived where you when you saw. Pardon me. Heard the bells of the boat.
Phillip: I was so relived that I thought I was just going to die there.
Reporter: So now that brings us to the fifth question. What exactly happend on the cay?

Reporter: What was your experience on that island like?

Reporter: So this timothy had bad grammer?
Phillip: Not exactly. It was his native accent that made his voice like that. 'Tis not 'is fault.
Reporter: What was the rescue like form your point of view?
Phillip: From my point of view? Well at first when the first plane left. I thought I was going to break into tears. The second time was just the same. Thinking i would never get off the island. Then the boat arrived. I was so overjoyed, but not enough to show it.
Reporter: One of the sailers was just astonished about what had been built back there. Anything to say about that?
Phillip: Yes. I built the catchment, palm mats, fire, and hut, But if you had seen Timothys! His where outragesly good.
Reporter: Ok. Last question. Was there anything you wanted off that island?
