  • Cheated Death

    Two of my nieces were on this boat that sunk http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worl...osta-Rica.html

    They're both in early 30s and very fit, and were among the last pulled from the drink

      I just talked to the younger of my nieces. She says she got pulled into the raft with two oh the dead, and the wife of one of the dead. She's pretty traumatized.

        Glad they're both ok. They're my two favorite nieces.

        Lauren SchultzThere were 8 of us. Me, Rach, Todd, Garrett, Allie, Shawn, Kristen, and Casey. We all have a little bangs and abrasions and emotional trauma and got separated for a bit but so grateful that we are all alive and well. 6 of us ended up on a freighter after about an hour in the water and the entire crew was absolutely amazing to us. We reunited with Rach and Todd about 6 hours later and just can't be more thankful for everyone who helped out.


        Rachael Schultz We saw some really horrible things and haven't processed yet

          Wow. So glad to hear that they were saved. So sad for the families who lost loved ones.

            One (Rachael) is married to a physical trainer (Todd) and her sister (Lauren) engaged to a personal trainer (Garrett). Both of these girls workout hours every day, which is good as they were in the drink in high winds and waves/swells for over an hour, and among the last plucked from the water.

              Amazing. A few more minutes, bigger waves, higher winds...any or all could have changed the outcome.
              Those girls are so lucky.
