Video: They rescue a man clinging to a buoy that fell from his boat

David Simpson, 64, an experienced sailor, who fell from his boat off the Sunshine coast in Australia, was found alive clinging to a beacon buoy.

Simpson fell into the sea after a strong wave hit his boat, and he swam a couple of kilometers until he reached a raft lighthouse, from where he tried to attract the attention of any boat that might pass.

The emergency services began the search after finding his ship stranded near a beach, with the engine running, his dog on board and his phone also inside. Finally Simpson was rescued by a helicopter and is in good health.
