This old man is the luckiest man alive. He was heading from the port of Long Beach to Santa Catalina Island, a 26-mile trip, when the mast of his boat broke. Adding insult to injury, the outboard motor and the two-way radio failed. He was lost at sea for over 3 months, he lost 40 pounds, but survived consuming rainwater, sea turtles and seagulls. Homeboy was roasting a gull when they found him.
