Greek man rescue after three days in the water

A man swept out to sea by strong currents last week while swimming at a beach was rescued alive in southern Greece after three days in the water, authorities said Tuesday.

The 43-year-old Greek man was found semiconscious in the sea late Monday by holiday-makers at a beach near Aigio, some 180 kilometers (112 miles) west of Athens, the Merchant Marine Ministry said.

His wife had declared the man missing on Aug. 10, after he failed to return from a swim at a beach some 25 kilometers (15 miles) east of Aigio. Strong winds were blowing in the area at the time, and a sea and air search failed to locate him.

The man, who was not identified, was treated in hospital for hypothermia.
