Biggs Story EP.285: หนุ่มรอดตาย หลังลอยเคว้งกลางทะเล 24 วัน


“Man survives 24 days at sea”

The Colombian navy has rescued a man who survived 24 days adrift in the Caribbean on a sailboat by eating ketchup, garlic powder and seasoning cubes.

Elvis Francois, 47, from Dominica, had scrawled the word “help” in English on the boat’s hull.

The sailboat was spotted by a pilot 222 km from land.

Francois said his ordeal began in December when currents swept the sailboat out to sea while he was making repairs in a village where he lives.

He said he survived on a bottle of ketchup, garlic powder and Maggi cubes.

He also collected rainwater with a cloth.

Finally, a plane passed by and he signaled with a mirror.

Francois was found in good health, but he had lost weight.
