'God Knows I'm a Truthful man': Sailor who Survived for 66 days Eating Raw Fish While Stranded at Sea Hits Back at Doubters as Authorities Probe Bank Statements to Check his Remarkable Story
  • Louis Jordan, 37, was rescued Thursday after being stranded 200 miles off the coast of North Carolina
  • Refused treatment when he was taken to hospital in Norfolk, Virginia
  • Coast guard crew who rescued him said he was smiling when they arrived
  • Group expected him to be severely sun burnt and covered in blisters
  • He refused treatment at hospital and conducted TV interviews straight away
  • Authorities are looking into his credit card and bank statements from during the time he says he was drifting
Daily Mail UK, 6 April 2015

The sailor who claimed to have ‘miraculously’ survived for 66 days at sea has responded to sceptics around the world – saying: ‘God knows I am a truthful man’.

Louis Jordan, 37, who was rescued 200 miles off the North Carolina coast, said he survived for more than two months on his stricken boat by eating fish he caught by trailing dirty clothes in the ocean, and by catching rainwater in a bucket.

But doubters have questioned how Jordan – who declined medical help despite claiming to have broken a shoulder and who appears well-fed, with pale, unblemished skin – seemed in such good shape after such a gruelling ordeal.

Doubters of Jordan's ordeal say that despite claiming to have broken a shoulder, he appeared to be well-fed, with pale, unblemished skin

Rebutting his critics for the first time yesterday in an exclusive interview with The Mail on Sunday, he said: ‘God knows I am a truthful man. My family knows I am telling the truth. The people who know me know that.’
He added that the authorities had checked he had not withdrawn money from his bank account when he first went missing, though they will now scrutinise his credit card and bank statements for any activity during the period he says he was drifting.
Jordan said his morale was boosted by reading the Bible from cover to cover, but claimed he lost 50 lbs after his supply of tinned food ran out and his diet was reduced to raw fish.

He also gave colourful examples of his experiences, from encounters with two killer whales who had ‘such beautiful faces, they looked so friendly’, to sailing through shoals of glowing phosphorescent jellyfish at night.

Jordan had been living on his docked sailboat in Conway, South Carolina, before he told his family he was 'going into the open water' to go fishing more than two months ago

Jordan, an amateur sailor who had been living on his boat, the 35 ft Angel, set off on a fishing trip from Conway, South Carolina, on January 23. He was reported missing six days later.
The sailor claims he broke his shoulder during one of the three times his boat was knocked over in heavy seas – destroying the mast, rudder and radio – yet he has shown no obvious sign of injury.

Last night a US Coast Guard spokesman said: ‘We don’t have any reason to doubt him but nor can we confirm he spent all this time out there. We are looking forward to learning more about what exactly happened. We are as keen as anyone to find out the truth.’

Survival expert Erik Kulik, of the True North Wilderness Survival School, said: ‘I would have expected him to be severely dehydrated.

‘After that amount of time at sea he would have been wobbly on his feet and yet he seemed to walk perfectly. He says he broke his right shoulder and yet he didn’t even seem to be guarding that shoulder in the pictures I saw after the rescue. There is a lot that doesn’t add up.’

After refusing treatment at the hospital, Jordan went right into taking part in television interviews about his experience

Jordan, who was rescued on Thursday, said his shoulder injury had healed, adding: ‘I have a bump but it’s fine. I feel no pain right now. After two months at sea it healed.’
He said he survived through ‘lots of prayer’, reading the End Time Prophecies and catching seaweed, crabs and fish by trailing dirty laundry off the hull.
He said: ‘One day I caught a jellyfish and I know you can eat some types of jellyfish. I put it to my lips and it stung so badly...I spat it out. I had to put charcoal in my mouth for 45 minutes to suck out the toxin.’
He added: ‘I don’t mind being criticised. To paraphrase the Bible – fools hate to be criticised but wise men love to be criticised.’

Jordan says that his morale was boosted during the trip by reading the Bible cover to cover. He claims lost 50 pounds and survived on raw fish and rain water
