Salvador castaway never wants to see ocean again


SAN SALVADOR, El Salvador -- Doctors say the Salvadoran fisherman who apparently drifted at sea for more than a year is vowing never to return to the ocean, including never wanting to see the sea again.

Sailor Jose Salvador Alvarenga, 37, returned home recently from the Marshall Islands after what he has described as 6,500-mile journey from Mexico that began when his small fishing boat was thrown off course by bad weather.
