Lost at Sea: Montauk Fishermen Look Back On Miraculous...

Photo by Andrew Seger


When John Aldridge fell off his commercial fishing boat 40 miles from the eastern tip of Long Island, he didn't expect to make it out of the water. Now, he and his fishing partner Anthony Sosinski are proud to call themselves Montauk's only fishermen with a book and a movie deal.

Fordham Conversations host Andrew Seger talks with both John and Anthony about their experience while on their ship, the "Anna Mary."  

We also hear from Commander Jonathan Theel of the US Coast Guard. He was the Chief of Response at the Long Island Sound Sector at the time John went missing, and headed the rescue mission.  Listen here.
