Coast Guard Rescues 14 Crew Members of HMS Bounty

(CNN) - This is U.S. Coast Guard video of the rescue of the Bounty's crew this morning off the coast of North Carolina.

The Coast Guard hoisted 14 crew members out of the dangerous seas to safety. But the agency is still searching for two missing people.

They were unable to make it into a life raft. A giant wave tossed them into the water as they were abandoning the ship.

The Bounty sank shortly after the rescue.

The replica of an 18th century ship was most famously featured in the 1962 movie, "Mutiny on the Bounty".
