The HMS Bounty, a Canadian built replica of an 18th century sailing vessel, was caught in the eye of the hurricane Monday and has sunk.
Fourteen crew members were hoisted to safety from a lifeboat.
One crew member, 42-year old Claudene Christian, is seen being rescued in this footage:
Tragically, she was unresponsive when found and died later at the hospital.
The captain, Robin Walbridge, aged 62, who was swept overboard, remains missing. The captain is wearing a survival suit.
His last message was on Sunday:
Good evening Miss Tracie
I think we are going to be into this for several days, the weater looks like even after the eye goes by it will linger for a couple of days. We are just going to keep trying to go fast and squeeze by the storm and land as fast as we can. I am thinking that we will pass each other sometime Sunday night or Monday morning.
All else is well
