A man who threw a message in a bottle to the sea 9 years ago has got a reply.
Max Vredenburgh was 10 years old when he sent his SOS to the world.
He dropped the bottle in the Atlantic ocean from Massachusetts in 2010.
On August 21, 2010 I threw a message in a bottle into the ocean from a beach in Rockport, MA. On October 10, 2019 that letter was found on the beach in France. I am mind blown. 9 years. pic.twitter.com/Af2tEwoQtq

Just last month it washed up 6,000 kilometres away on a French beach.
The person who found the message discovered Max liked apples, animals and outer space.
The now 19-year-old college student says he will keep everyone updated on the situation going forward.
