NORTH CAROLINA - A man who was missing at sea for 66 days is now back home. Louis Jordan, 37, was reported missing back in January after he left South Carolina to go on a fishing trip.

According to the Coast Guard, somewhere along his fishing adventure, Louis ran into some rough weather which not only caused his sailboat to capsize but also left him with a broken shoulder and damaged gear.

He survived by eating raw fish he caught with his bare hands and drinking rain water.

Louis' luck finally changed after a German-flagged vessel spotted him and rescued him about 200 miles east of North Carolina's coast.
