Sure would be interesting to know more details on this one...

Just a hunch, but I'd guess being in the North Atlantic, roughly midway between Europe and the US, near the end of freakin' JANUARY, just might have been a factor in yet "another very modern rescue"...

Time to cue the Polish jokes, perhaps? (grin)
