Well, that's terrifying.
A fishing boat named the Alaska Juris started to take on water Tuesday near Alaska's Aleutian Islands with 46 people on board. It was so foggy, it was hard to see.
Fortunately, their heroes were nearby.
The good Samaritans' willingness to respond ... was paramount to getting the Alaska Juris crew to safety.
The crew activated a Coast Guard beacon, which was answered by two ships, the Spar Cannis and Vienna Express.
According to the NOAA, the water temperature near Adak, where the crew was eventually taken to port, was about 49 degrees Fahrenheit. That's cold enough to cause fatal hypothermia in an hour, according to the Personal Flotation Device Manufacturers Association.
The ship has had trouble before, The Associated Press reports. A fisherman died on the Juris in 2012 after a cable snapped and hit him in the head.
Also in 2012, the ship had to request Coast Guard help after an ammonia leak was discovered on board.
