Three Florida boaters are back on dry land after being stranded in the middle of the ocean for three days.

A fisherman found John Nevarez, 32, Elias Nevarez, 31, and Rebecca Sullivan, 28, Tuesday, clinging to a small cooler.

The trio had nothing to eat or drink and no life vests after their 24-foot boat capsized in rough waters.

The boaters stayed afloat by paddling even as their legs were stung repeatedly by jelly fish.

"If they didn't get rescued today, John's legs from paddling and jellyfish eating them up -- I don't think they'd be able to make it," John's father said.

"It was wonderful to see that she was fine and it's been quite an ordeal," added Rebecca's mother, Terri Wilson.

All three are in the hospital but are recovering quickly. Ironically, their vessel that sunk was named "The Problem Child."
