Joaquin Phoenix's Long-Lost 'Twin' Was Just Rescued From The Middle Of The Ocean (PHOTOS)

The pics of the rescue are a must-see.

On Sunday, the United States Coast Guard Sector Jacksonville made an incredible rescue of a man stranded at sea. 

Stuart Bee, 62, was found 86 miles off the coast of Port Canaveral, Florida, clinging for life on the bow of his sunken boat. 

According to the USCG, Bee was reported missing on November 28 when he didn't return to the marina the night before.

On Saturday, Bee's boat experienced a mechanical failure and he was woken abruptly after midnight on Sunday by a wave of water rushing into the cabin.

Amazingly, Bee was able to escape through the front hatch of the boat, but he was stranded in the middle of the ocean overnight.

After sunrise on Sunday, Bee spotted a USCG boat in the distance, took off his shirt, and waved down the crew aboard vessel Angeles.

There's no denying that the two men look like they could be long-lost twins — you'd almost think it's a shipwreck scene from a Phoenix movie.

Doppelganger comparisons aside, Bee made it onboard the ship and was rescued successfully by the USCG.
