A replica tall ship, the HMS Bounty was caught in Hurricane Sandy Monday. Though the crew tried to sail around the storm they lost propulsion and began taking on water forcing them to abandon ship.

In the midst of this deadly hurricane the Coast Guard sent its rescue helicopters out. The following video shows in real time the dangers these brave men and women face.
