hoto from http://runwithreza.org/ Reza Baluchi’s website sayd he devised the hydro pod “to prevent physical difficulties” on his trip to Bermuda.

  A longtime endurance runner and peace activist whose latest goal was to reach Bermuda in a homemade floating “Hydro Pod” was rescued by the U.S. Coast Guard on Saturday after he began suffering from fatigue.

 

A man attempting to ‘run’ to Bermuda from St. Petersburg, Florida was rescued by the U.S. Coast Guard on Saturday after he set off his Personal Locating Beacon, requesting assistance.

The Coast Guard 7th District command center had been monitoring Reza Baluchi since Wednesday when he was spotted in his personal inflatable hydro-bubble.

Baluchi was reportedly disoriented at the time and asking for directions to Bermuda.

Crewmen on board the Coast Guard Cutter Webber arrived on scene, explained the dangers of his trip, and requested Baluchi terminate his trip due to the lack of supplies on board his watercraft.

Baluchi, who had protein bars, bottled water, a GPS and a satellite phone, on board with him refused to comply and continued on his way with the Coast Guard keeping tabs on him.

Saturday Baluchi activated his beacon and the Coast Guard dispatched an HC-130 airplane, a MH-60 helicopter, and the Maersk Montana, a vessel registered with the Automated Mutual Assistance Vessel Rescue System to rescue him.

A rescue swimmer retrieved Baluchi and safely hoisted him from his inflatable raft into the helicopter.

Baluchi was then transported to Air Station Clearwater where emergency medical services evaluated him.

Baluchi was reportedly 70 miles off the coast of Clearwater, Florida when rescued.

No injuries were reported.
