A man who fell overboard from a ferry on its way from Sweden to Finland was rescued from the Baltic Sea Monday night, and taken to a local hospital in Turku, Finland.

It is thought the thirty-year-old spent over 90 minutes in the water before being found by a search and rescue team. He had hurt his leg and was suffering from hypothermia, the tabloid Aftonbladet reports. Rescuers say they don't yet know why the Swede fell overboard.
