Modern Robinson Crusoe found in 'The White Sea'

The other day in the White Sea they found a modern Robinson on one of the islands, where he had spent more than two weeks. Resquers from Arkhangelsk saw a famished man on a small island from their helicopter.

He turned out to be a worker of a monastery who had disappeared on October, 1st! The 25-year old man said that after his karbass had sunk during a heavy storm, he found himself on a tiny desert island.

To survive, the man dug a hole to protect himself from the wind, ate seaweed and drank rain water. The man was immediately helicoptered to a hospital and his condition is stated as normal.
