A 37-year-old man is now safely ashore after spending 66 days at sea.

Louis Jordan was spotted late last week by a passing container ship 320 kilometres off the coast of North Carolina. He had ventured out on a solo fishing trip when his sailboat capsized a number of times in poor weather.

He managed to stay inside the boat, but with a broken mast, was unable to sail to safety. This 2 minute video shows the U.S. Coast Guard airlifting Jordan from the container ship. The U.S. Coast Guard began a search in February, but ended it 10 days later.
