Man Survives 11 Days At Sea In A Freezer
A Brazilian fisherman survived 11 days in the Atlantic Ocean by staying inside a frozen freezer.
Romualdo Macedo Rodrigues was on his sinking wooden boat when he noticed the freezer was not sinking, so he jumped inside. Rodrigues said that sharks surrounded the freezer at one point, but eventually swam away.
The 44-year-old, who does not know how to swim, remained at sea in the freezer for 11 days until another fishing boat pulled him aboard. He was then taken to a hospital for treatment.
"I was thinking about my kids, my wife ... all my family. It gave me strength and hope," Rodrigues said. "I thought I wouldn't be telling this story, but I'm back here."
