This story is something straight out of the movies! A 62-year-old Florida man by the name of Stuart Bee was found clinging to his capsized boat Sunday morning by the crew of a massive container ship. According to reports he was roughly 86 miles east of Port Canaveral. The 225-foot container ship M/V Angeles located the man alive on the hull of his 32-foot Sea Ray and took him aboard. “I had an incident out there," Bee said. "It was pretty dire.” The Coast Guard had been searching for signs of Bee since he was reported missing on Friday.

“The chances of finding Bee alive were slim,” said Lt. Shawn Antonelli, Coast Guard command duty officer for District 7. “But he was able to stay with his boat, which helped save his life.”
