Leap of Faith Saves Man (and Cat) from Rough Seas

A Frenchman in a small yacht was caught in rough seas off the coast of Alaska Tuesday. The Coast Guard responded to a distress call call following a location beacon. Royal Dutch Shell had boats in the area, and send their support ship the Tor Viking to rescue the man. The disabled boat was found in rough seas with 20-foot waves. A video was captured by the C-130 Hercules airplane that pinpointed the yacht’s location. Look closely: the man is hanging on to a rigging pole at front of the boat.
