According to Bay 9 News, 61-year-old William Durden, from Reno, Nevada, was fishing alone in the Homosassa River and not wearing a life jacket when he fell overboard.
"I went through different phases. First couple hours, 'I’ll find some way to wave down and get on somebody’s boat.' Then sundown comes and, 'Oh well, I’m gonna have to plan for nighttime now,'” Durden told Bay 9 News. "I was just praying that no big shark would come out and decide to have me for dinner."
