Rescuing a Man-overboard is a Special Miracle

The Associated Press: Sailor, knocked from boat, rescued 12 hours later 12 hours with no life jacket. Even in summer, Lake Michigan water isn't warm.

The Coast Guard knew what kind of odds they were facing.
"When we heard a survivor was spotted in the water, you'd have thought we won the Super Bowl from the cheers," said Chief Mike Weisenbaugh, officer in charge of Coast Guard Station Green Bay.
Lake Michigan is a large body of water. It is worse on the ocean. I usually tie myself to the boat when I am single-handing.
