Coast Guard helps rescue man after 2 months adrift in Pacific Ocean
(CNN) -- He spent two months adrift in the Pacific and saw three of his companions die -- and the Coast Guard is calling him "fortunate." That's the story of a 29-year-old Colombian mariner who arrived in Honolulu on Wednesday, according to a U.S. Coast Guard press release. The Coast Guard said the man, whose name was not given, was picked up on April 26 by a Panamanian freighter about 2,150 miles southeast of Hilo, Hawaii.
