U.S. COAST GUARD RESCUES 14 CREW FROM THE TALL SHIP THE H.M.S. BOUNTY
Many of you know the fourteen people who were the crew from the Tall Ship The H.M.S. Bounty since the Bounty spent some time giving tours at The Newburgh Waterfront. 14 of the 16 crew were safely rescued by the U.S. Coast Guard less than 24 hours ago 90 miles from the North Carolina coast.
Sadly two of the crew were not rescued. The captain is missing but there is still hope that he will be found since the water is almost 80 degrees, the air is warm and he has a cold weather survival suit on.
What a wonderful, wonderful show of teamwork by the Captain and Crew of the Coast Guard Helicopter!
