    A Malaysian cargo ship on its way from Seattle, Washington, to China ran aground off the coast of western Alaska's Aleutian Islands on December 8, 2004, during a brutal storm, leading to one of the most incredible Coast Guard rescue missions of all time. Two Coast Guard Jayhawk helicopters lifted off immediately from Air Station Kodiak during the driving storm, in an effort to rescue the ship's 18 crew members before it broke apart and sank in the freezing waters.

    Any additional comments?

    While the story itself is compelling it floundered then drowned in an unthusiastic narration. Dean could not achieve any sense of emotional urgency in the dialogue between characters so necessary in a story such as this. The pitch and tone of his voice was almost flat which made for listful listening at best. I trudged through half of it before deciding to abandon ship.
