Man rescued after 66 days at sea

Man rescued after 66 days at sea
An American who had been missing at sea for more than two months, was rescued by a German tanker after having floated around in the Atlantic on a capsized boat.

Louis Jordan (37) didn't come back after he embarked on a fishing trip from South Carolina in a 35 feet tall ship in January. On Thursday, he was picked up by a German tanker over 300 kilometers from shore.

According to local media, the boat had capsized, and Jordan was found sitting on the boat, which had the keel up.

He is now in a hospital in Norfolk in Virginia after being brought onshore by helicopter. He is under the circumstances in good shape.

- I could not sail back with my boat, I could not repair it. I regret so much, I'm fine now, says 37-year-old in a recording by the US Coast Guard and published in US media.

Jordan have survived on rainwater, beans and raw fish. His father says he never gave up hope of seeing his son alive. He also believes that his son managed to survive because he prayed a lot.

- He told me on the phone that he prayed all the time, so I think that it helped him a lot, says Frank Jordan in an interview with CNN.
