Craig Daniels stands on his pickup truck that was washed into the embankment along State Road 29 as he tumbled next to it in the Category 3 force winds as Hurricane Wilma passed through Chokoloskee, October 25, 2005.  Daniels went out in his truck to check up on his airboats as the storm approached and was thrown from his truck by the waves crashing over the road and then swam and crawled for three hours to travel 1.3 miles where he was rescued by a family friend directly in front of his church.
