A 62-year-old French man managed to survive 16 hours at sea, in an air bubble that formed after his boat capsized.

The 12-meter vessel, which had set sail from Lisbon, the capital of Portugal, sent an emergency signal on Monday night from somewhere in the Atlantic Ocean.

Spanish coastguards found the boat upside down, but the tide was too rough to attempt a rescue, which meant the man had to wait until dawn.

His survival “was almost impossible,” the coast guard divers said.
