Michael Tougias returns to discuss his latest book, A Storm Too Soon, which gives a true account of survival and dramatic rescue in the Gulf Stream in 2007. Watch this clip from WCVB’s Chronicle: Storm Too Soon Feature
According to Tougias:
Seventy foot waves batter a tattered life raft 250 miles out to sea in one of the world’s most dangerous places, the Gulf Stream. Hanging onto the raft are three men, a Canadian, a Brit, and their captain, JP DeLutz, a dual citizen of America and France. The waves repeatedly toss the men out of their tiny vessel, and JP, with 9 broken ribs, is hypothermic and on the verge of death. The captain, however, is a tough minded character, having survived a sadistic, physically abusive father during his boyhood, and now he’s got to rely on those same inner resources to outlast the storm.
