Fisherman lost at sea for 11 days survived in an upturned freezer

A fisherman who was lost at sea managed to survive for 11 days by climbing into an upturned freezer. Romualdo Macedo Rodrigues, 44, was sailing off the coast of French Guiana in a seven-metre wooden boat when it began taking on water and promptly sank. To make matters worse, the Brazillian native couldn’t swim – but luckily, he had a freezer on board so he climbed into that and hoped it would float. He then managed to stay afloat in the floating freezer for 11 days, with no food or water, before he was eventually spotted and pulled from the sea by the crew of another vessel off the coast of Suriname, which borders French Guiana. >click to read< 09:04
