    that's the freighter that was following the edmund fitzgerald when she sank





    i used to play this clip for the boy scouts to demonstrate the concept of heroism:



    ...








    radio dialogue between the coast guard station at the soo locks and the captain of the anderson, during which the coast guardsman asks captain cooper to turn around his fully loaded 767 foot long vessel back into the teeth of the wicked storm they had just battled through and made shelter from, to search for survivors





    i love the coastguardsman's voice at 1:32, knowing what he's asking cooper to do



    Those linky things don't work on the app...but I love stories about shipwrecks. Did the Captain go back out?
