"Un milagro de la virgencita"

Having spent almost a year drifting around the vast expanses of the Pacific Ocean, three Mexican fishermen finally made landfall yesterday on the Marshall Islands.

Doubts have been expressed about the original object of their ill-fated voyage - shark fishing or drugs pick-up.

The two men that originally hired them with their boat apparently died after refusing to partake of the fishermen's diet of raw fish, and were eventually thrown overboard...according to the survivors. Hmmm.

They generally maintained a good supply of rain water, but on several occasions went weeks with solid food. (Those two dead narcos must have looked tasty...)
