>>Yes i can see that point, but we don't really know do we, he could have survived for that length of time far stranger things have happened...<<
Actually we know very well what could not possibly have happened and that's because:
a) The temperature of the water was 28 degrees F and
b) People don't survive for two plus hours in water that cold without special outfitting.
It just doesn't happen.For information on cold water survival times see http://www.ussartf.org/cold_water_survival.htm
>>all i want to know is there any explanation as to how he could have survived for that length of time in the water<<
Before trying to explain something, one must first establish that there is something to explain. In this case, there isn't.
