After his wife was rescued from the water in the middle of the night, the husband claims he thought she had gone below deck.
It was all smooth sailing for a Rhode Island couple during their day-long trip at sea, but things got a little cloudy when the wife had to be rescued after falling overboard. Sounds like your typical rescue, but the thing is, the husband didn’t even notice she was gone.
The Coast Guard and the Bristol Fire Department’s marine unit rescued the woman after responding to a call at around 4am from a local claiming to hear a woman calling for help. According to to the husband, the last time he even saw his wife was in the afternoon, hours before she was rescued. He assumed she had gone below deck, but really she had fallen off the deck of the 39-foot boat.
Police are still investigating what the real story is, but the Boston Globe reports that the husband had been drinking. As for the wife, she was found suffering mild hypothermia and refused medical treatment.

This Canadian runner has learned not to be so hasty with the chugging when he's running on a stomach full of beer.
The moral of the story is to finish your beer!
Canadian Corey Bellemore is really having one of those “so close but not” type of moments. He was all set to break a world record when he was suddenly disqualified for missing one - just a half an ounce - of detail.
In a video posted to Twitter, Bellemore can be seen speeding ahead during the Beer Mile World Classic, a race where contestants have to drink 12-ounce beers every quarter mile before they finish. He crossed the finish line with what seemed like a record-breaking winning time of 4-minutes, 33-seconds. But, he was sadly disqualified… for not drinking enough beer.
According to the Beer Mile’s website, he lost by half an ounce of beer, and it looks like he learned his lesson about being too hasty with the chugging. “Never rush through life,” Bellemore jokes in a tweet following the loss. British runner Dale Clutterbuck took his spot in first place with a time of 4-minutes, 47-seconds.
