Taipei: A Taiwanese man has miraculously survived a 60-hour ordeal drifting in rough seas off the island`s east coast even though he cannot swim, local media reported on Monday.
Mr Tseng Lien-fa was catching baby eels on a beach in Hualien county early Friday when he was swept away by an unexpectedly large wave.

"I managed to hold on as the first wave hit me on the chest, but I was overwhelmed by the second and bigger wave," the 42-year-old told the United Daily News.
Media reports said Mr Tseng managed to grab a floating wooden coffin lid to which he clung until early Sunday. There was no explanation of why the lid was present in the sea.
