A Colombian castaway has been rescued in the Pacific Ocean after two months adrift.

He was fishing with three colleagues when their motor failed. The man says he survived on a diet of fish and seagulls, but his companions eventually died.

Their bodies were not aboard the skiff when it was found.

A Panamanian-flagged ship spotted and rescued him as he floated near Hawaii.

The 29-year-old has since been transferred into the custody of the US Coast Guard.
