New York Minute: January 17th

- For an unknown reason, a 38-foot tug boat started sinking in Atlantic Beach, threatening to take down a man holding on for his life.

Professional photographer Bjoern Kils was doing commercial work nearby when he heard a mayday call for help on the radio. He then rushed to the scene. The Coast Guard saved three mariners pulling them out of the frigid waters. The dramatic rescue happened just two days after another tugboat sank in the same area off Atlantic Beach.
