Mexican shark fisherman who spent 13 MONTHS adrift in the Pacific

 Miraculous survival: A man, believed to be called Jose Ivan, claims to have set off from Mexico for El Salvador in September 2012 but ended up travelling more than 8,000 miles to the Ebon Atoll

Across a crackling radio transmission, the 'Miracle Man of the Pacific Ocean' told for the first time today how his incredible 16 months adrift in a small boat had left him 'desperate and exhausted.'

Speaking briefly to MailOnline through an interpreter as he was carried by boat from a tiny atoll to the main port in the isolated Marshall Islands, Jose Ivan told of his anxiety to be reunited with his family.

'I just want to get back home to Mexico, but I don't even know where I am,' he said, his voice filled with emotion.
