Man Rescued After 66 Days Lost At Sea

The U.S. Coast Guard saved a man adrift in a
sailboat last night after he survived a 66-day ordeal at the mercy of Atlantic Ocean waves and weather. Louis Jordan was rescued some 200 miles off the coast of Cape Hatteras, North Carolina. Jordan ran into trouble after setting sail on a fishing expedition when a storm capsized his sailboat, broke the boat's mast and damaged his communication gear. He told a reporter,

"I was planning on catching some big ones," Jordan recalled. "On the way there, my boat capsized. I was actually sleeping, that's when it happened. The whole boat had turned around and I was flying through the air somersaulting and the ceiling was the floor and the floor was the ceiling and this side was the other side and everything was upside down and backwards."
