Alvarenga was admitted to a local hospital for medical and psychological tests.

Jose Salvador Alvarenga, 37, told officials he set sail on a shark fishing trip from Mexico in late December 2012 - some 10,000 km (6,200 miles) away - but was blown out to sea. He survived more than a year adrift in the Pacific Ocean, drinking turtle blood and catching fish and birds with his bare hands. He was found in a disoriented state on a remote coral atoll where he had been washed up over the weekend in his 7.3-meter (22-foot) fiberglass boat. A police patrol boat took him to Majuro, the capital of the islands. He was then whisked away to hospital for medical checks. REUTERS/ Ulises Rodriguez (EL SALVADOR - Tags: SOCIETY)

The family of castaway fisherman Jose Salvador Alvarenga -- (L-R) his father Jose Ricardo, sister Fatima Orellana and mother Maria Julia Alvarenga -- walk along a stretch of beach in their fishing hometown of Ahuchapan February 4, 2014. Jose Salvador Alvarenga, 37, told officials he set sail on a shark fishing trip from Mexico in late December 2012 - some 10,000 km (6,200 miles) away - but was blown out to sea. He survived more than a year adrift in the Pacific Ocean, drinking turtle blood and catching fish and birds with his bare hands. He was found in a disoriented state on a remote coral atoll where he had been washed up over the weekend in his 7.3-meter (22-foot) fiberglass boat. A police patrol boat took him to Majuro, the capital of the islands. He was then whisked away to hospital for medical checks. REUTERS/ Ulises Rodriguez (EL SALVADOR - Tags: SOCIETY)

Coffee beans are seen in a roaster at the La Majada coffee farm in Ahuachapan
Coffee beans are seen in a roaster at the La Majada coffee farm in Ahuachapan January 10, 2013. Central American farmers who produce some of the world's most sought-after coffee beans are grappling with the re-emergence of a merciless old foe: a tree-killing fungus known as roya spread by the wind. Aggressive outbreaks of the blight have hit Central America's major coffee-producing nations and Mexico, which are home to more than a fifth of the world's arabica coffee production. The pandemic risks decimating yields, threatening hundreds of thousands of livelihoods and export revenues in some of Latin America's poorest countries. Making matters worse, coffee prices have fallen by about half since a mid-2011 peak, leaving farmers to face a double-whammy of shrinking incomes on top of depressed output.

An ex-combatant and member of the Asociacion de Lisiados de Guerra (Association of War Cripples) sits next to his prosthetic leg during a protest in San Salvador January 15, 2013. Former military servicemen who fought in El Salvador's 1980-1992 civil war demanded among other things a 50 percent increase in their pension a day before the country celebrates the 21st anniversary of the end of the war, according to local media.
