CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

Some tense moments for one man after his kayak overturned and the rescue was caught on tape. The video was sent to us by the US Coast Guard.  It happened 8 Miles north of the Packery Channel.

Officials say around 11am, the Coast Guard received a call for a man that overturned his kayak and was barely clinging to it.

A rescue helicopter and rescue boat both responded.

The helicopter located the man about an hour later, which was partially submerged in the water.

The man was said to be wearing a life jacket. He was plucked from the water and will be okay.
