HARPSWELL, Maine (AP) - Officials say a California man is in stable condition after overturning his boat in the ocean off Maine.
The Cumberland County Sheriff's Department says 25-year-old John Alexander Eckhouse of Sherman Oaks, California flipped a 14-foot Boston Whaler in Middle Bay off Harpswell around 5:30 p.m. Saturday.
Authorities say Eckhouse was near drowning when a fisherman in the area heard his screams for help, rescued him and brought him to shore.
Officials say he was brought to Mid Coast Hospital in Brunswick suffering from hypothermia.
