The man, who initially identified himself by the name Jose Ivan, was rescued by two locals last Thursday near Ebon Atoll. This tiny coral island is in the southernmost part of the Marshall Islands, roughly 8,000 miles from the purported beginning of this man's journey from Mexico. During his debriefing with local officials, he admitted that his name was Jose Salvador Albarengo, and he began his shark fishing voyage with another man, a teenager known by the name of Xiquel. After strong weather blew their 24-foot fiberglass boat off course, they were soon lost in the Pacific. Albarengo claimed that the teen had starved to death after only a few weeks, refusing to eat the raw birds and other food they were catching.
