Pacific Castaway Hospitalized

    A Salvadorean castaway who identified himself as Jose Ivan and later told that his full name is Jose Salvador Alvarenga walks with the help of a Majuro Hospital nurse in Majuro after a 22-hour boat ride from isolated Ebon Atoll on February 3, 2014. Jose was washed up on Ebon Atoll on January 30, 2014, and told his rescuers he set sail from Mexico for El Salvador in September 2012 and has been floating on the ocean ever since.

    Jose Salvador Alvarenga, the man who says he was lost at sea for 13 months, was hospitalized on Thursday after his health severely deteriorated. Earlier this week, Alvarenga, who washed up on the Marshall Islands last week, was released from the hospital. Now his limbs have started to swell, and doctors say they can't keep him hydrated. Alvarenga, who is originally from El Salvador, must now postpone plans to return home.
