The family of castaway fisherman Jose Salvador Alvarenga pose in their fishing hometown of Ahuchapan
The family of castaway fisherman Jose Salvador Alvarenga -- (L-R) his sister Fatima Orellana, father Jose Ricardo, and mother Maria Julia Alvarenga -- pose for a picture 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)
