"Luckily, the cruise ship the Regal Princess was in the area on its way to St. Thomas. The U.S. Coast Guard's Seventh District in Miami sent an aircraft to the crash site and contacted the ship's captains for help. Regal Princess crew members were able to rescue two people from the downed plane."

Not to say that it wasn't a good job but what choice did the Captain really have after being notified that they were in distress?
Pass them by & not pick them up?
