A Massachusetts college student has received a response to a message he threw into the ocean when he was 10 years old

ROCKPORT, Mass. -- A Massachusetts college student has received a response to a message he threw into the ocean when he was 10 years old.

Suffolk University sophomore Max Vredenburgh says he put the letter into a glass wine bottle that he threw into the water at Long Beach in Rockport in August 2010.

In Vrendenburgh's original letter he listed some of his favorite things including apples, the beach and outer space. He also asked that the letter's recipient "please write back."
