Overboard without PFD, clinging to a cooler

A boat crew from Coast Guard Station Alpena, Mich., rescued a man Sunday who was in 60-degree water without a life jacket in Lake Huron for almost four hours after his boat capsized.

The man reportedly held on to a floating cooler while another man who had been on the boat with him swam to shore and called for help.
