The HMS Bounty sinking. 14 crew members were rescued, one died, and one, the captain, is still missing.
Claudene Christian, 42, a crew member on the Bounty, died after she was swept into the ocean by a wave. Her body was recovered by the Coast Guard; Captain Robin Walbridge is still missing. Christian’s mother said her daughter called and said, ” ‘We’re heading out and I just wanted to tell you and dad that I love you.’ And I said, ‘What are you saying that for?’ And she said, ‘Just in case something happens.’ She was truly and genuinely happy and loved the Bounty and loved what she was doing — and wanted us to know that just in case she went down with the ship.”
