The Mummified Body Of An Adventurer Lost At Sea For Years Has Been Found (NSFL)



The mummified body of a German adventurer has been discovered on a yacht which appears to have been quietly drifting around the world for years.

59-year-old Manfred Fritz Bajorat was found by two fishermen at the weekend off the coast of the Phillipines. They found him slumped at his desk near the radio telephone on the 40ft yacht, as though he was trying to make one last attempt to call for help.

The mast on the yacht was broken and much of the cabin was underwater, and though it’s unclear what actually led to Manfred’s death, the dry ocean winds and salty air helped preserve his body.

The image itself is pretty NSFL, so don’t say we didn’t warn you.

Welp, can’t look much deader than that.

No one knows how long he’s been dead or how long exactly his yacht has been drifting at sea, but the last reported sighting of him was back in 2009. Police are now trying to retrace his last voyages to see if they can get any more info.

The last person to see him in 2009 told reporters:

He was a very experienced sailor. I don’t believe he would have sailed into a storm. I believe the mast broke after Manfred was already dead.

I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t looking forward to the results of the autopsy on this one. I mean just how long was Manfred chilling in that seat for? 5 years? Sounds a bit like the blog life to me. And all the while his boat’s just casually sailing itself around the world? That’s one sturdy vessel for sure.

And to think, DJ Khaled’s lost at sea experience could have turned out so much different.
