So this dude Jose Salvador Alvarenga from El Salvador was lost a sea for over a year -- exactly 438 days. He's a fisherman who planned a two-day fishing trip. But here's the kicker: he was lost at sea with his shipmate Ezequiel Córdoba, who died months after at sea. And the family of the dead castaway is accusing Alvarenga of cannibalism.
But Alvarenga said that isn't true. He said he survived on on raw fish, turtle blood, and even his own urine. According to his account, Córdoba died after convulsing. After keeping the corpse for six days, Alvarenga let him go into the water.
"Not for a second did I think of eating Ezequiel. I wouldn't have done it, even if it meant that I starved. It would have been on my conscience forever," he told the Daily Mail.
The family of Córdoba is suing for 1 million dollars.
