Lost in the middle of the ocean, a fisherman survives 11 days in a freezer

A Brazilian fisherman survived 11 days in his freezer after watching his ship sink.

Romualdo Macedo Rodrigues, 44, was forced to find a solution quickly when he saw his boat taking on water, according to the HuffingtonPost.

After inspecting his freezer and noticing that no cracks were visible, he decided to jump in and try to survive as long as possible.

“When I saw there was no way out, I took the freezer and left,” says the fisherman in the Domingo Espetacular show

According to estimates by the Brazilian press, he would have drifted for 11 days and traveled more than 450 kilometers before being fished out by a group of Surinamese fishermen.

He would have survived in this freezer without water or food in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean.
