Man Swept 9 Miles Out to Sea by Tsunami Is Rescued.

Japan — A Japanese man who was swept 9 miles out to sea by Japan’s deadly tsunami was plucked to safety Sunday after being spotted clinging to a piece of wreckage, officials said.

A Maritime Self-Defense Force destroyer rescued 60-year-old Hiromitsu Shinkawa after discovering him floating on a piece of roof in waters off Fukushima Prefecture, two days after the disaster struck.

The man, from the city of Minamisoma, which was virtually obliterated, was swept out along with his house after the massive tsunami tore into Japan’s northeast, following an 8.9-magnitude earthquake Friday.
