A fisherman in Florida is saved by his will to survive, and by treading water for almost 24 hours.
Steve Mourmouris was fishing alone in the Gulf on Thursday when he fell overboard without a life jacket.
He treaded water overnight, and watched a shrimp boat pass by without spotting him. As a sea and air search continued, another boater was able to spot Mourmouris and rescue him.
He went to the hospital exhausted and dehydrated, but alive after his 22 hour ordeal.
