British sailor Andrew Taylor is lucky to be alive after falling overboard into the Pacific ocean during the Clipper Round the World yacht race.
A huge wave swept Taylor off the deck of the 70-foot yacht, Derry~Londonderry~Doire, and into the frigid ocean.
Taylor’s crew members searched for the missing sailor in rough seas for over an hour before spotting his yellow life jacket.
The 46-year-old was pulled aboard after several frantic attempts. Taylor spent 90 minutes in the water and was treated for shock and hypothermia.
