The Atlantic Ocean, Sept. 15, 1999 — Crew members of the ocean tug Gulf Majesty exit an SH-60 of Helicopter Support Squadron Eleven (HS-11) following their rescue at sea, after their tug had sunk. Eight crew members were rescued and brought to USS John F. Kennedy (CV 67) for medical evaluation. Kennedy responded to their distress call around 8:30 this morning. The carrier, about 150 miles from the tug's reported location off north Florida's Atlantic coast at the time, had been at sea less than a day after leaving its homeport of Mayport, Fla., to ride out Hurricane Floyd.
