TheDailyBeast: Hurricane Sandy Heroes From Coast Guard Rescuers to Red Cross Volunteers

Coast Guard Rescuers

Coast Guard rescuers saved 14 crew members aboard the HMS Bounty, a three-mast ship that was trying to maneuver around Hurricane Sandy. The rescuers flew out to the 180-foot vessel in helicopters, braving 40 mph winds and 18-foot waves to bring in the Bounty's crew. The ship, which was traveling from Connecticut to St. Petersburg, Fla., had been taking on too much water and lost propulsion because of the hurricane.
