The Coast Guard and SeaTow followed a debris trail in the water until they saw a flashing light. Rescue teams followed the light from a flashlight when they found a man in a life-jacket, clinging to a cooler. He was not hurt.

The Coast Guard said the life-jacket, cooler and flashlight saved the man’s life.
