Re: HMS Bounty in trouble...

From CBC News:
As of 8:20 a.m. AT, a U.S. Coast Guard Jayhawk helicopter had begun hoisting the crew members from the life-rafts.

Campbell said officials were still trying to determine exactly how many crew members were on board. The Coast Guard was originally told 17 people were on the Bounty but only 16 heat signatures were detected.
