This video shows a French sailor and his cat being rescued in rough seas near Alaska. The man hurled himself from his disabled boat named “La Chimere” to the larger vessel. He had lost his rudder and rigging in the 46 mile per hour winds and called for help. The Coast Guard sent a support vessel called the “Tor Viking” which is featured in this rescue video.
The man told the Coast Guard that he was securing his cat “inside either his sweater or coat” before diving head first over the railing of the Tor Viking and into the arms of safety.
The video is amazing! I can’t believe they made it!
