A sailor's mistake about the sea tides left him and his boat stranded for hours.
When the tide went down, his boat became accidentally lodged on an oyster bed in Hilton Head, South Carolina.
He had no option but to wait until the tide returned again to free him and his boat.
The man was spotted by two kayakers who filmed a video of the incident which took place on September 26.
The video shows the scene where a boat is unusually stuck on high ground in the middle of the bay.
The camera zooms in on the stranded boat which just shows the man sitting alone in the bow of the boat.
