UPDATE: HMS Bounty Ship Sinks, 14 Rescued, Two Possibly Missing | fox4kc.com – Kansas City news & weather from WDAF TV – FOX 4: " . . . When the HMS Bounty‘s crew members realized their lives were in danger off the North Carolina coast in the dark morning hours, they made a short journey they hoped they’d never have to take — to two waiting life rafts. But of the 16 people on board, only 13 initially made it. Three crew members washed overboard, and only one of those three climbed into a lifeboat, Coast Guard Vice Adm. Robert Parker told CNN. The two people who fell off the sinking Bounty into the frenzied waters face “extraordinary conditions” awaiting rescue, Parker said. All of the HMS Bounty’s missing crew members were wearing survival suits designed to keep them afloat and warm, “but in these conditions, it’s very problematic,” Parker said, adding a timely deployment of search-and-rescue aircraft and ships gives the missing a chance. A C-130 aircraft and a helicopter have been monitoring the area around the shipwreck of the Bounty, a tall ship that appeared in some classic adventure films. Two Coast Guard cutters were en route to the scene to help with the search-and-rescue effort, with one expected to arrive later Monday and the other expected Tuesday, Parker said. . . ."

A Coast Guard MH-60 Jayhawk rescue helicopter later recovered crew member Claudene Christian, 42, who was described as unresponsive, while continuing to search for the 63-year-old captain of the ship, which sank in 18-foot (5.5 meters) seas."
