MARSHALLS-MEXICO-SALVADOR-SURVIVAL-TRANSPORT

A photo obtained on February 6, 2014 shows the claimed boat of Pacific castaway Jose Salvador Alvarenga of El Salvador shortly after his January 30 arrival on the remote Ebon Atoll in the Marshall Islands. Alvarenga was born in El Salvador but had lived for years in Mexico, where he says he set off on a fishing trip in late 2012 before becoming lost and drifting some 12,500-kilometres (8,000-miles) to the Marshalls in a small boat. The 37-year-old said he survived by eating raw fish and birds as well as drinking turtle blood, urine and rainwater for 13 months, but a teenage companion named Ezequiel starved to death during the ordeal.
