KEY WEST, FLA - It may remind you of a scene right out of the movie "Cast Away," except this story isn't scripted.

The U.S. Coast Guard rescued a man who was lost at sea for six days in the Bahamas. Larry Sutterfield, 39,  told the Coast Guard that his boat drifted over to an island.

Luckily, an air crew saw the poor guy waving his arms while they were on a routine patrol.  They managed to get him off the island.

Other than being sunburned, Sutterfield is just fine.
