A two hour pleasure trip a nightmare for Raymond Kearne, 48, his wife Jacqueline, 39, and seven-year-old son Jimmy, when their motorboat ran out of petrol. And all the time they only 11 miles away from the crowded holiday beaches of Majorca. Raymond yesterday at his villa on the island: 'We now know what it's like to face death - a horrible death at that'. The family, who come from Lichfield, Staffs, ran out of fuel on their way back from a round-the-bay trip on Saturday. Raymond said, 'The winds got very violent and us out to sea'. All that the family had taken with them was one bottle of orange juice. Raymond said: 'On Monday, we were dying of thirst. We filtering seawater so that we could drink it but it didn't work. So we our own urine to save our lives. Then we ate seaweed. It bloody awful'. Just as they had given up hope, a Spanish fishing boat and picked them up. The family were all suffering from sunburn, thirst and hunger.
