LOL, there have been a number of press stories on my little incident, which I find surprising in itself (slow news day??)… but I have been reading them and they are all so wrong… the funniest is one in the El Salvador newspaper (you can see it here in Spanish: http://elsalvador.com/noticias/2005/06/22/elpais/pais4.asp ). They actually quote Elsie and I numerous times, saying things like Â¨We were so scaredÂ¨… but we never even talked to them… they just made it up. They also call me Jeff Berwink, and Elsie Ewoo, lol. Berwink will be my new nickname for this year.
Here is one from the CBC, through AP: http://www.cbc.ca/cp/world/050621/w062186.html
The CBC one is totally wrong too… they stated that we were receiving medical treatment and were in stable condition? lol. They also say the Salvadoran Navy saved us… we talked to the Navy a bit on ElsieÂ´s cell phone that night but they told us they couldnÂ´t come out to get us because they didnÂ´t have any boats.
