Atlantic City sailboat sinking rescue

Watch the video.. The boat is obviously not sinking!. I think it would be safer to stay onboard. The report below says the boat is sinking and having 6ft of water (six feet!). But the video (at 11:58) shows a very buoyant Swan 44 floating nicely on its line. Is the boat still afloat? Use Google to search video:
