In this photo of Wednesday, July 24, 2013, provided by the US Coast Guard, lobsterman John Aldridge lies on a stretcher at Air Station Cape Cod in Sandwich, Mass. after being rescued by a Coast Guard helicopter. Aldridge, a fisherman for 19 years, fell overboard and spent 12 hours floating in the ocean south of Montauk, N.Y. before he was rescued. He credited his rubber boots for saving his life. Aldridge was not wearing a life jacket when he fell into the ocean and used the boots for floatation until he was found Wednesday afternoon, more than 40 miles from his boat.
