160 miles out to sea? So many questions. Where did he come from? Where was he going?!
I bet that he didn’t get all the way out there under his own steam. Did his own boat sink or did he get dropped off the side to swim home alone? Aliens? Or, to continue on the theme I have had of late with rains of strange things, was he part of a rain of humans? Him being the last one still swimming when help arrived? 😉
He was lucky that he was seen by a boat. What are the chances of a single human being noticed when you are that far out at sea? If I was swimming 160 miles out the only thing that would spot me would be a hungry shark.
This article doesn’t specify if he was swimming out to sea or back to shore, but either way I don’t think he was going to make it to his intended destination.
