He must be healthier than most 20 years old's running around in Shinjuku, guaranteed.

A 69-year-old man drifted in choppy waters for nearly a day while clinging to the bottom of his capsized boat until he was saved by the coast guard, officials said Wednesday.

Wow, tough cookie. Lots of people would not have survived this, and certainly not at his age.
