It's a good thing this didn't happen in the Gulf of Mexico. The government would have said "Drowning men are endangered you have to throw him back!"

Afterwards, the man was left in the water, as to not injure his internal organs, measured, vented, and released. NOAA was notified withing 24 hrs of the release and a report has been filed. Scientists reported that the man has a high probability of release survivability as he was released using a ARCO de-hooker. Details at 11:00. :doh
