Minnesota Native Rescued From Tall Ship In Hurricane Sandy
(Nisswa, MN) -- A Minnesota couple is breathing a sigh of relief after their son was rescued from a replica tall ship caught in Hurricane Sandy's wrath. The HMS Bounty began taking on water, forcing the crew to abandon ship in rough seas off the North Carolina Coast. Among them, Nisswa-native First Mate John Sevendsen -- one of 14 crew members rescued by the Coast Guard. Sevendsen's father says his son is doing well and is being treated for a broken hand. Two crew members remain missing and it's believed they were not able to make it onto a life raft.
