Passing Container Ship Saves Boater in Distress


The Coast Guard is celebrating what it calls a truly incredible outcome in the waters off Brevard County.

Stuart Bee was found Sunday morning more than 85 miles off Port Canaveral after his boat capsized.

The 62-year-old went sailing Friday on his 32-foot boat, but it had a mechanical problem before it started taking on water.

The Coast Guard says Bee was spotted by the crew of a container ship after he took off his shirt and waved it to get their attention.
