MSNBC reports that two men and a survival kit were knocked from the boat by a large wave.

One of the men was 68 and had gone through open heart surgery just a year before. He didn’t think he’d make it to shore ( a long swim in rough water). But then the survival kit, that included an inflatable life preserver, washed up beside him. He says it was a miracle.

The next miracle happened three years later. The boat, thought lost as sea, washed up on the coast of Spain.

What are the lessons learned from this accident?

    1. Always wear a flotation device when in a small boat at sea.

    2. Some boats are more seaworthy than others!
