The trio didn’t have time to grab life jackets when their vessel flipped.

“We’re in the middle of the ocean, we flipped a boat,” one of the boys can be heard coolly telling a 911 operator.

“Are you staying on top of the water?” the dispatcher asks.

“We’re staying on top, but I’m not sure how long we can last, though,” Zach replies.

“And you can’t get anyone’s attention around you?” the operator says.

“No. We’ve been trying,” Zach answers.

One hour later, help finally arrives.

“We were just all thinking positive. No one was really panicking or anything,” Zach told Inside Edition.
