A 77-year-old sailor and his dog were rescued off the coast of Mexico. The man, who wasn't identified, said had no recollection of how many days he had been at sea, but he had set sail from Ventura, Calif.

Because he lacked food and supplies, the man and dog apparently had been at sea for several days, possibly headed to Tahiti, according to the rescue crew.
