      If I was stranded and my friend best best friend I would have asked one way not to go insane give each other sexual favors

        After 438 days lost at sea he ends up in that one carnival Aboriginal island isolated from the world and just eat him for dinner.

        The irony would be that he actually ate his friend, only to be eaten by indians

                      Almost 100% guaranteed the story of the other guys death is not true. But is amazing reading the comments to see how naive people are.

                        The legal bullshit of having to deal with getting sued, subpoenas, court dates, etc. is infinitely scarier than being stranded at sea.

                          FYI Alvarenga is from El Salvador, he was living in Mexico at the time. After he was rescued, he returned to his country.

                                              This story just screams bullshit. With no shade and no proper hydration, the dude would've died from the sun alone within weeks. He would literally look like a human beef jerky after being baked in the sun for over a year, yet he is barely tan after his "rescue"

                                                  God, just watching those mountains from his land sink out of sight would be awful! I hope Karma got ahold of those bastards who waved from that passing ship. Talk about a blessing gone terribly wrong for this poor guy. Through all of his misfortune though, he seriously lucked out by drifting straight for that tiny island. Given it was also tiny and in the middle of nowhere, I would've loved to learn how he was finally rescued. Lastly, I would've loved to hear more about that other family suing him too. I'm wondering if his boat was covered in that dead guy's blood, supporting the family's accusations that he didn't simply die of starvation or illness.
