Video Captures Coast Guard Rescue After Pinterest Investor's Boat Hits Stormy Seas
$2.5 million luxury catamaran malfunctioned in stormy seas.
— -- Video captured the U.S. Coast Guard rescuing a millionaire Pinterest investor and four other crew members after their $2.5 million catamaran malfunctioned.
The incident happened about 200 miles off the coast of North Carolina on Friday afternoon. Video of the rescue shows the crew members - including Brian Cohen, a Pinterest investor - being plucked from the churning water via helicopter.
"There was 40 knot winds and 13 foot seas and they took a wave over their bow that appeared to be a little bit too much for their boat and the mast split in half," said Coast Guard Officer First Class Allen Facenda.
The boat - dubbed "The Rainmaker" - was profiled by Forbes last year.
