A Brazilian fisherman was rescued after 11 days without food and water floating in a refrigerator in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean.

The man took shelter in it after his boat sank.

Romualdo Macedo Rodrigues set out on a fishing trip in his seven-metre wooden boat from the state of Amapá in northern Brazil in late July, planning to spend a few days in the sea, but destiny had a different plan.

The 44-year-old Romualdo, after a couple of days in the ocean, realised that his boat was damaged and that water was gathering in the lower deck.
