Men survive 14 hours stranded at sea
Two New Hampshire men are safe on solid ground after spending 14 hours clinging to a capsized boat.
The men's boat overturned in the Salem Sound off the Massachusetts coast Saturday morning. They lost the one life jacket they had and did not have way to call for help.
They were rescued after a fisherman passing by spotted them.
"We knew it would be a long night and we knew our best chance was to stay with the boat and to not panic."
"Praying together, quoting scriptures."
"And encouraging each other because we knew -- I tell you what, that's a life or death struggle out there in the water."
The men were treated at the scene then released. The Salem harbormaster says they were in "remarkably good condition."
