Brave, Intelligent, and patient. Those are three words you could use to describe a tourist from germany that fell overboard into the water. The tourist was knocked overboard off the coast of New Zealand and used his jeans as a floatation device. This technique is used by the U.S. Navy Seals. The man was delivering a yacht with his brother when the mainsheet came loose and knocked him in the water. His brother threw a life jacket and a rope into the water but he was already too far away so he couldn't reach it. He spent almost 4 hours at sea when a rescue helicopter spotted and rescued him. He was rescued by a diver.
