Missing sailor is found alive aboard tattered vessel nearly 300 miles off the coast of NC two weeks after setting sail from NJ to Bermuda
A sailor was rescued Wednesday when another mariner came across his battered vessel about 270 nautical miles from the shores of North Carolina.
The sailor had departed from New Jersey en route to Bermuda before soon losing communication on Nov. 6 with his family, who alerted the U.S. Coast Guard that he was overdue
Once he was found alive, the Coast Guard transferred the man to shore aboard one of its cutters.
The rescued sailor was reunited with his family after more than a week adrift at sea
