HONOLULU (KHNL) - Three men rescued at sea after claiming they survived nine harrowing months on the open ocean, now find themselves, in even "deeper" trouble. The men arrived in Honolulu Wednesday and are now facing some shocking allegations.
Through an interpreter the men claim they had food and water for just a few days.
So they were forced to survive on rain water, and "raw" fish and seagulls. Salvador Ordonez said he survived in part by drinking the blood of ocean animals.
But neither of the other men told the same story and back in Mexico City, authorities say many other parts of their stories don't match up. This has lead authorities to suspect the men may not have been fishing for sharks like they claim, but rather involved in drug trafficking.
