The 81 yr old man in this video is my husband. I am so thankful for the Coast Guard and God for saving my husbands life.The Sentara hospital where he was taken is fabulous.If the Coast Guard had not taken him, I truly believe he would have been comatose or dead before the ships return to NewYork city. My heartfelt thanks. Julia Hull
