The sole survivor of 16 months drifting across the Pacific has been taken from Ebon Atoll to Majuro in the Marshall Islands. He made the 22 hour journey from Ebon Atoll to Majuro in a police patrol boat under the care of a male nurse. A crowd of 1000 gathered to see him step ashore.
His name is Jose Salvador Albarengo. A 37 yearold, originally from El Salvador, he had been living in Mexiso for some years. Jose set off to hunt sharks with a young lad aged 15 to 18 in late 2012. Winds blew them off course and they became lost. The lad survived only a few weeks because he could not eat raw bird meat.
