“I was starving. The only items on the boat were a bottle of ketchup, some garlic powder, and bouillon cubes. I thus combined it with some water so that I might survive for 24 days at sea “In a video that the Colombian Navy posted, Elvis Francois, 47, said.

According to naval officers, he kept rainwater in a handkerchief to stay hydrated.

In an effort to attract the attention of a passing aircraft and request assistance, Francois carved the word “help” into the boat.

Finally, he was discovered 120 nautical miles northwest of Puerto Bolivar.

Francois claimed that although he saw other ships while he was stranded at sea, he was unable to get their notice.

In one attempt to hail another ship, he even started a fire on the boat.

Francois had to abandon ship when it started to take on water in order to keep it from sinking.

Mr. Francois used a mirror at the end of his adventure to attract the notice of a passing plane.
