(Virginian-Pilot) Missing since January, a South Carolina man was found Thursday afternoon on the capsized hull of his sailboat about 200 miles east of Cape Hatteras, N.C.
It's unclear how long he'd been living like that, but 37-year-old Louis Jordan apparently told his rescuers that he'd been catching and eating fish to survive.
"I was just praying about you because I was afraid that you guys were crying and sad that, you know, I was dead," he told his father, Frank Jordan, in a recorded phone call released by the Coast Guard.

Frank Jordan replied, "Yeah, well, we were. I thought I lost you."
