Florida Man Used a Human-Sized Hamster Wheel

A Florida man identified as Reza Baluchi, 44 years old, used a human-sized hamster wheel to cross the Atlantic and allegedly attempted to run to London, England. The Georgia Coast Guard officials said that he was rescued 70 miles off Tybee Island.

In a published article in FOX News, the criminal complaint stated, “Based on the condition of the vessel – which was afloat as a result of wiring and buoys – USCG officers determined Baluchi was conducting a manifestly unsafe voyage.”

According to a published article in USA Today, it took days before the Florida man was convinced to board the Coast Guard vessel. The complaint obtained by the news outlet stated that Baluchi threatened to kill himself using a 12-inch knife if anyone tried to stop him.

Furthermore, it was found that it was not his first time to run on water using a human-sized hamster wheel. Officials said that he made the same voyage in 2014, 2016 and 2021. Coast Guards apprehended all of these voyages. He is now facing federal charges of obstruction of a boarding, and violation of a Captain of the Port order.
