The U.S. Coast Guard released video last week showing the rescue of several dozen crew members from a capsizing fishing vessel, which sank in the Bering Sea.

Fortunately for the crew, nearby friendly vessels came together to help rescue all 46 of them Tuesday night. Crew members were forced to abandon the sinking ship in the freezing water near the Aleutian Islands, in Alaska.

Not only did all of the crew members get rescued, none of them were reportedly injured.

“The 220-foot fishing vessel Alaska Juris began taking on water near Kiska Island,” said Coast Guard Petty Officer Lauren Steenson. “All 46 crew members were transferred to good Samaritan vessels Spar Canis and Vienna Express to be transported to Adak, Alaska.”

The ship is believed to have had up to 100,000 gallons of diesel on board when it capsized. Search efforts for the ship have found no signs of the vessel, leading many to believe it sank.

The cause of the vessel taking on water is currently being investigated.
