A Father and Son Talk for the 1st Time After Son Was Lost At Sea [AUDIO]
It was like something out of a movie. Members of the Coast Guard rescued a man off his disabled sailing vessel about 200 miles off the coast of North Carolina. 37-year-old Louis Jordan and his ship 'Angel' had been missing for 66 days. Listen in as father and son speak for the first time.
Watchstanders at the Coast Guard Command Center in Portsmouth received notification from the German ship 'Houston Express' at around 1:30 Thursday afternoon that the crew had spotted a man and his disabled ship and had taken him on board. A Coast Guard Jayhawk helicopter was sent to the ship and transported Jordan to a Virginia hospital.
Coast Guard officers recorded Jordan's first phone call with his Dad, who had feared that his son had perished at sea. Get the tissues ready for a touching reunion. I'm guessing that it's the best Easter present the Jordan family's ever received.
