A sailor, missing for 66 days, was rescued 200 miles off Cape Hatteras, N.C. Louis Jordan’s 35-foot sailboat capsized two months ago. He survived for 66 days at sea on the upturned hull of his boat, drinking rainwater and catching fish, before finally being rescued by a passing German container ship.
