Louis Jordan is grateful, and lucky, to be alive. Sixty-six days ago 37-year-old Jordan took his sailboat out to the open ocean to go fishing. He was not heard from again. That is, until a German tanker ship that was passing by happened to spot him. The tanker ship picked up Jordan and brought aboard where they notified the United States Coast Guard of his rescue.
When he was rescued, he was found to be in good shape other than a broken collar bone and suffering from dehydration. His parents, who feared he was gone, were ecstatic to hear the good news. So was Dr Jennifer Walden when she heard the news. He was reunited with them once the Coast Guard brought him back to land.
