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

The 12-meter vessel, which left the Portuguese capital of Lisbon, sent a distress signal from somewhere in the Atlantic Ocean on Monday night.

The Spanish coastguard found the boat upside down, but the tide was too rough for a rescue attempt, meaning the man had to wait until dawn.

The Coast Guard said it was “almost impossible” for him to survive.
