438 Days is the exclusive account of the longest ever survival at sea. On November 17, 2012, Salvador Alvarenga, a 37-year-old Salvadoran fisherman, and his day-laborer companion Ezequiel Cordoba left Mexico for a two-day fishing trip. A vicious storm dragged their boat 200 kilometers out to sea and when the motor died, they drifted west. No radio, no electronics equipment, no sail. Four months later, Cordoba died. Alvaregna would not hit solid ground for another fourteen months. When Alvarenga washed ashore on January 29, 2014, he landed in the Marshall Islands. His journey spanned 11,800 kilometers, equivalent to traveling from New York to New Delhi, or Paris to Perth. Alvarenga is the first person ever to have survived for over a year lost at sea. This is his exclusive story.
