A man who drifted on the Atlantic Ocean for 16 days said that he survived by eating Doritos and cookies.
Samuel Moss Jr left the Bahamas island of Bimini to travel to Nassau on January 13th in a 21-foot angler. He quickly ran out of fuel as he tried to sail through rough waves.
The 23-year-old drifted alone until another boater spotted his boat taking on water about 10 miles off the coast of West Palm Beach, Florida.
Moss said he survived on Doritos, cookies and bottled water for 12 days until a 40-foot wave hit his boat and he lost his supplies. He said he hoisted a canvas as a makeshift sail and used his anchor to steer.
The US Coast Guard flew him ashore where he was treated for dehydration.
