Captain Doug Pine is a friend of mine. We met during the production of Project London, he plays himself, as captain of the floating restaurant, Icarias. Doug made this video and his description of events follows below.

On June 26, 2011, the Tug Aries sunk in the Bering Sea, about 109 miles East of St. Paul Island. After the crew managed to get from the sinking tug to the barge they were towing, Captain Doug Pine pulled out his iPhone and began taking footage of the rescue. All four members of the crew were safely rescued by the USCG. The Aries was a 68-ft tugboat owned by C&K Marine and was towing a barge bound for Nome, AK when she sunk.
