• Short Summary

    US Coast Guard men rescue the crew of a damaged merchant ship off the coast of Florida.

  • Description

    Titles read: "COAST GUARD!"

    Florida, United States of America.

    After a sequence of huge waves lashing coastal towns, we see excellent news shots of a merchant ship rolling helpless in very heavy seas. A small coast guard ship stands a short distance away occasionally vanishing as the waves lift the merchant ship and the cutter drops in the swell.

    Good M/Ss of open lifeboat manned by men from the Coast guard taking men off the damaged ship and rowing them through the waves to the rescue ship. M/Ss of the crew of the damaged ship lined up on deck of the coast guard rescue ship as it enters harbour. C/U of the insignia of the US Coast Guard Service.
