An Irishman rowing naked across the Indian Ocean has been rescued off Australia after he hit his head in rough seas.
Keith Whelan stopped the bleeding himself after a swell threw him. He called a member of his team in Britain who notified Australian authorities. A cargo ship eventually picked him up.
Police in Perth said the injury was minor and Mr Whelan was being taken to Bunbury on Australia's western coast - 370 miles south of Geraldton, where he set off last month.
The 29-year-old wants to become the youngest person to sail from Australia to Mauritius, off Africa. But he has added another twist: He's not wearing clothes.
Bad weather has already forced him back to shore once.Reuse content
