Now here's something you won't see every day...

Man Found Floating on Raft at Sea Between Denmark and Norway

STOCKHOLM, Sweden — Swedish authorities Saturday were investigating how a man calling himself a "stateless American" ended up floating on a raft of oil barrels and wood planks in the waters between Denmark and Norway.

The man — who carried no identification, spoke perfect English and said his name was George Williams — was found by a Norwegian oil tanker on Friday morning, floating in the Skagerak sea on a raft of four oil barrels held together by a frame of wooden planks.

He told police he had been thrown from a ship several days earlier and now wanted to go to New York, but offered little further information.

Give the producers of 'Lost' a nanosecond to digest all of this, and the guy is co-starring next week.
