"The only thing that kept me alive where the raw fish I ate and the light from my waterproof watch,"says the man.
A Spanish fisherman who drowned in the sea is back with a very interesting story. The man who disappeared for several days after he went overboard during bad storm has return to share his survival tale.
The 56-year-old fisherman Luigi Marquez claims that a whale swallowed him. According to Marquez he stayed there for three days and nights.
When Marquez didn’t return home, the coastal guard tried to find him during but failed to locate him and he was considered dead.
"This great beast swallowed me the morning after the storm," he told local reporters.
"It is the most frightening thing I have ever lived. Everything was pitch black and I was shivering cold. The only thing that kept me alive were the raw fish I ate and the light from my waterproof watch, that is how I kept in touch with time. And the smell, I will never forget that horrible stench of putrid decomposition. I had to wash for three days before the odor went away," Luigi Marquez told reporters.
"This is truly a miracle! Saint Mary of Jesus has heard our prayers. "I prayed and I prayed and I never lost faith, and the Lord has brought me back my precious Luigi," told his wife, Penelope Marquez, to local reporters.
Though there are many speculation over what Marque is saying, but he claims that he was inside the whale for 72 hours before it flushed him out.
