    CNN just reported that 1 person has been found clinging to an overturned boat but had no further info.

    Wow. That would be amazing to survive out there for that long.

    Just watched live video of Schuyler being taken out of the helicopter at the hospital. I hope they find the other guys soon.

    Man, 15 foot waves. Must have been pretty scary.

    GOOD NEWS!!!

    Schuyler reportedly told his family that all of the boaters were alive and together at about 2 a.m., but somewhow got separated.

    They will find them soon.

    If they were not rescued with Nick, then hopefully they will be found alive if they had life jackets on and just drifted far away from the boat. But still if there are Sharks out there....

    It's amazing how you can lose body heat in relatively warm water. Even 78 degree water will tap you out after significant time.

    And 12 hours since they were separated is a long time. Also, the reason that they drifted off may have been becuse they were losing energy.

    The latest report I heard was they weren't separated at 2am last night but the previous night. This doesn't sound good.

    I guess the storm came out of nowhere.

    Do you really think they had life jackets on? I'm sad to say it, but my expectations have been low ever since they found the one guy that anyone else would be found.

    At this point if they have not found after more than 48 hours, I don't think we will ever see those guys alive.

    All I can think about is that movie Open Water where that couple was stranded out there never to be seen again.

    Sad sad sad. Looks like it is over. The coast guard said they were extremely confident nobody is above water or they would have found them by now. They will be calling off the search at sundown in an hour or so. They were so close to surviving. They were all together 2am Monday morning.

    Last I heard the boat capsized and none had on Lifeperservers. They went under the boat and put on the LPs.

    They found a cooler and a life jacket about 16 miles SE from the boat. With over 60 hours in the water, their chances of survival are nil.

    Coast guard suspending rescue operations at 6:30PM, but families are thinking about putting together their own rescue effort and looking out on the water themselves...

    Schuyler says that all four guys had life jackets on....but got separated and apparently he was the only that had enough strength to hold on.

    As Trey Wingo put it on ESPN, that's like finding a needle in a haystack.
