Here’s a story from the you-can’t-make-it-up department — A man was rescued recently from an inflatable bubble by a Coast Guard and rescue crew. Reza Baluchi, a popular marathon runner, was using the bubble in an effort to get from Miami to Bermuda. He was spotted by Coast Guard watchstanders floating inside the bubble looking disoriented.
He was on the first leg of an ambitious journey to outline the Bermuda Triangle — one that would take him from Miami to Bermuda, down to Puerto Rico, and then back to Miami, according to Baluchi’s website.
The purpose of the bubble voyage? Beluchi’s goal was to raise money for children in need and give inspiration to those that have lost hope, according to reports. “I believe my heart is love and I simply follow my heart where it takes me, in peace around the world,” he writes on his site. But running on land apparently wasn’t enough for Baluchi. As can be seen in the video, he embarked alone on the 'bubble journey'. He was carrying protein bars and planned to survive by fishing during his journey.
