Yacht Racer Rescued After 1.5 Hours in Pacific

A British sailor survived 90 minutes in the freezing Pacific Ocean after he fell overboard during the Clipper Round the World Race on Monday. Andrew Taylor, 46, of London, was being treated for severe shock and possible hypothermia and said he endured “horrible” hailstones during the rescue mission on the high seas, NBC News reported. “I didn’t know if you were looking for me or not – didn’t know if you’d seen me,” he told crew members in footage posted to YouTube. “You just got further and further away.”
