What happened?

We went spear fishing 13 miles off shore from Virginia Beach. the day started off fine but due to mechanical failure and increasingly larger waves, the boat took on water and quickly capsized. I was able to grab the ResQLink 400 Personal Locator Beacon before jumping overboard.

Rapid Response: The Heroic Efforts Behind a Wilderness Rescue Mission

Walking through Pam's Path, a narrow track with loose stones, Holly stepped over a large rock, causing her left foot to slip sideways down the slope.
