A missing fisherman who had fallen from his boat off the coast of Brazil was found clinging to a signal buoy.

David Soares, 43, was rescued by a fellow local fisherman two days after his boat had been found adrift in the Atlantic Ocean.

He told local media he had fallen from his fishing vessel and swam for four hours before he came across the buoy, which he managed to scale.
