Sandy Survivor Mike Recalls Being Swept Away
Anderson sat down with Hurricane Sandy survivor Mike Iann, who was swept away in the storm outside his grandparents' home in Toms River, NJ. When Mike, 28, opened the door to to escape, he was caught in icy waters 10 feet deep, but some how managed to navigate his way to a nearby home, and broke in when nobody was home.

This is what Iann wrote:
"Who ever reads this I'm DIEING I'm 28 yrs old my name is Mike. I had to break in to your house. I took blankets off the couch. I have hypothermia. I didn't take any thing. A wave thru me out of my house down the block. I don't think I¹m going to make it. The water outside is 10ft deep at least. There's no res[c]ue. Tell my dad I love him and I tryed get[t]ing out. His number is ###-###-#### his name is Tony. I hope u can read this I'm in the dark. I took a black jacket too. Goodbye. God all mighty help me."
