Just when they thought all hope was lost, this happened. 

Daily Mail – A sailor who vanished after heading out to sea more than two months ago has miraculously been found alive and well off the North Carolina coast.

Louis Jordan, 37, was picked up by a German-flagged ship at 1:30 p.m. on Thursday – 66 days after he took off to do some fishing. He was found sitting on the capsized hull of his sailboat, Angel, which had lost its mast and was approximately 200 miles east of Cape Hatteras.

‘They saw me on the front of my boat standing up there waving my arms,’ he told the Today show of the huge German ship after he left hospital. ‘And they turned that huge skyscraper around.’

A Coast Guard helicopter crew from North Carolina flew to the ship and airlifted Jordan to a hospital in Norfolk, Virginia, said Lt. Krystyn Pecora, a spokeswoman for the Coast Guard.
