A 37-year-old South Carolina man was rescued Thursday after spending more than two months alone in a sailboat at sea, living on fish and rainwater, the U.S. Coast Guard said.

The crew of the Houston Express, a German-flagged ship, reported to the Coast Guard that they found Louis Jordan and his sailboat Angel around 1:30 p.m. Thursday, approximately 200 miles east of Cape Hatteras N.C.

A Coast Guard helicopter flew out to the Express and took him to a Norfolk, Va. hospital, where he was treated for an injured shoulder, The News & Observer reported.

"From what he told us on the phone, he was catching fish and collecting rain water and drinking it," Coast Guard spokeswoman Lt. Krystyn Pecora told the paper.
