A fisherman washed ashore on the Marshall Islands in January. He claimed he had been drifting for thirteen months. At first, they called it a miracle. Then, there was skepticism that he could have survived the elements at sea for that long and emerged none the worse for the ordeal. However, his story checked. A fisherman was indeed reported missing at sea in Mexico in November 2012. Being a seasoned fisherman, experts say it is possible he had survived at sea like he said he did, eating raw fish and drinking fish blood. Is it no less a miracle then?
