He discovered that cannibals visited the island now and then. Six years later, the cannibals came with victims to kill. One escaped and Crusoe saved his life. The latter turned faithful and Crusoe named him Friday, the day he was saved. On his 28th year on the island, Crusoe sighted a passing ship.
