From The Huffington Post:
A man who apparently passed out on a pool float at a Tampa area beach ended up drifting about a mile from Florida's shore in the Gulf of Mexico.
The U.S. Coast Guard rescued the man, identified as Jerry Whipple, on Wednesday afternoon.
Coast Guard Petty Officer First Class Mariana O'Leary says they suspect the man was very drunk.
No word on whether or not he was covered in oil when they retrieved him.
