Search continues for missing Bounty captain
The U-S Coast Guard says a woman who was rescued in the Atlantic after abandoning ship in rough weather churned up by Hurricane Sandy has died.
A Coast Guard spokesman says 42-year-old Claudene Christian was unresponsive when she was pulled from the water yesterday evening and was later pronounced dead at a hospital.
Fourteen other crew members were rescued from H-M-S Bounty.
The Canadian-built replica 18th-century sailing vessel was originally built for the 1962 film ``Mutiny on the Bounty'' and was featured in several other films over the years.
The Coast Guard is still searching for the ship's captain, 63-year-old Robin Walbridge.
