When a boat breaks down in the middle of the open water, it can be a very stressful situation, to say the least. But with all that open space, the last place you would expect to break down is right in the middle of a shipping lane.
Unfortunately for this little boat off the New Jersey coast, it decided to stall right in the path of an oncoming oil tanker.
The small boat came within inches of being run over. Must have been their lucky day.
