Two New Hampshire men whose boat capsized off the Massachusetts coast prayed and sang gospel songs as they survived a 15-hour ordeal that ended with them being rescued by a passing fishing boat.
Reynolds tells The Associated Press the friends sat back-to-back and prayed for strength, calm seas and calm winds as they shivered violently, cramped up and tried to stay warm.
Reynolds says a passing fishing boat spotted them about 7 a.m. Saturday and took them to shore, where they were checked over by emergency medical technicians before going home.
Overnight temperatures Friday fell into the 40s.
