A woman and two children were rescued from a capsized vessel near Vieques in Puerto Rico on September 21, as the area was hit by strong waves during Hurricane Maria, according to footage published by the US Coast Guard.

The Coast Guard and Britain’s Royal Navy were both involved in the rescue.

The Coast Guard said they “received an alert via emergency position indicating radio beacon and then a distress call on Sept 20 from the Ferrel stating they were disabled and adrift in 20-foot seas and 100-knot winds.”

A fourth person, a British man, was reportedly found dead in the capsized vessel, according to reports citing the Coast Guard.
