ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla. -- A man in a hydro pod bubble was rescued 70 miles east of St. Augustine Saturday morning. A Coast Guard crew rescued the man.
The Coast Guard received a report about Reza Baluchi, a U.S. citizen was floating in an inflatable bubble and was "reportedly disoriented and asking for directions to Bermuda Wednesday."
The Coast Guard Cutter Webber arrived on scene and requested Baluchi terminate his trip because of the lack of supplies on board to sustain him. The Coast Guard said Baluchi had protein bars, bottled water, a GPS, and a satellite phone.
According to Baluchi's website, he is a marathon runner and was aiming to travel through the Bermuda Triangle in the bubble in order to raise money for charity.
