After going missing for more than 20 hours, a 66-year-old man was rescued near Grizzly Bay, California over the weekend thanks to the Coast Guard.

The man was declared missing after he failed to return from jet skiing and that's when crews from Coast Guard Air Station San Francisco went to work. The man was found experiencing hypothermic symptoms and hoisted to safety by an MH-65 Dolphin helicopter crew.
