A German tourist found an unusual method to float in the water after falling off the New Zealand coast and not carrying a life jacket.The man has improvised a floating device in the jeans he wears, reports Deutsche Welle. 

Arne Mucke and his brother sailed with a yacht from Aukland to Brazil. At one point, the sailboat, moved by a strong breeze, struck Arne, throwing it in the waves. The incident occurred off the east coast of New Zealand. 

The man did not wear the life jacket, being dressed only with a t-shirt and a pair of jeans. His brother, Helge, tried to pull him out of the water by throwing him a rope and an inflatable vest, but the waves quickly removed the yacht from Arne and could not reach them, according to the New Zealand Herald. Fortunately , Arne remembered a trick he had learned many years ago, namely how to improvise in an emergency a vest of a pair of pants.

“I’ve always thought that if I’m going overboard without the life jacket, I’ll try this method,” Arne Mucke explained to the New Zealand press.

“I breathed deeply, pulled out my jeans, made knots at the end of the cracks and swelled. Then I sank. So I got a life jacket. “ 
The authorities were alerted by his brother and a rescue helicopter arrived on the spot, but after a search of about two hours of boating in New Zealand‘s vast ocean.

“Imagine yourself staying isolated in the middle of the ocean for hours on end, with no hope of being rescued. Finding the seaman on the offshore was like looking for the needle in the fan carriage, “explained one of the saviors, Ian Wilmot.
