Dramatic scenes off the American coast as shipwrecked survivors of the Robert E Lee are rescued.
United States of America.
M/S shows a lifeboat (rowing boat) being launched from a beach onto a very rough sea; in the far distance we can see the wrecked Robert E Lee steamer. L/S of some shipwrecked people clinging onto a kind of raft on the water; another is in the sea, struggling to stay above the water. Several shots of the lifeboat on the water and coming back towards the beach.
