KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia -- A Japanese man was plucked out of the waters off Malaysia after 10 hours adrift at sea after he went missing on a diving trip, news reports said Tuesday. The 32-year-old, whose family name was given as Miyazawa, was pulled to safety by fishermen. He appeared dazed and did not know where he was when rescued on Monday.

He had gone on a diving expedition to photograph corals with a friend but failed to resurface. Police quoted by the Bernama news agency said that Miyazawa was apparently swept away by strong underwater currents. He was taken to hospital for observation and reunited with his family.
