A castaway from El Salvador who says he spent more than a year adrift in the Pacific is back home.

Jose Salvador Alvarenga was found washed up two weeks ago in the Marshall Islands. He says he left Mexico for a trip in a boat in December 2012 with a friend who died on board.

Lorena Arroyo reports.
