The U.S. Coast Guard, with the help of some nearby fishermen, were able to rescue the four-person crew of a recreational boat that had capsized and broke apart around ten miles out into the Atlantic Ocean off of the shore of South Carolina.

As the boat was sinking the stranded boaters sat on the hull and used a distress beacon to alert the authorities. Although the troubled boaters had several life vests available to them, the dude in the yellow shirt is just too cool to wear one while balancing on a sinking boat in choppy waters. He even falls off the wreckage at one point, almost earning his Darwin award.
