New video from Palm Beach police shows the moments after former Miami Dolphins fullback Rob Konrad came to shore following a fall overboard.

The former second-round NFL draft pick said he was about 10 miles out in the Atlantic Ocean when "an unusually large wave" knocked him off his boat, which was on autopilot and headed in the direction of the Bahamas.

In the video, Konrad is seen draped in a large towel and speaking to an officer outside of a home where he came to shore.

Konrad is heard in the video asking the officer if he had a cellphone. The officer called Konrad's mother.

"Could you ask her to call my wife and tell her I'm OK?" Conrad asked the officer.

An investigation into the incident corroborates Konrad's account.
