The Yarmouth Police hosted a Media Relations event today at their headquarters.
As you will see in the following video, members of multiple press agencies showed up to meet and interview Arthur C. Moscufo and his loved ones.
Arthur C. Moscufo of Medford was rescued last Tuesday morning after he was found clinging to an overturned boat overnight for approximately 13 hours in the dark frigid waters of Nantucket Sound.
Mr. Moscufo was recently released from Cape Cod Hospital, and his girlfriend, sister, and mother were present today to thank his rescuers from the various agencies involved.
The following video shows the entire first half of today’s media relations event, where Mr. Moscufo shared his amazing story of survival, expressing his heart felt gratitude for all those who teamed up to save his life.
You also hear from Moscufo’s girlfriend, the woman responsible for persistently alerting the Yarmouth Police. Moscufo’s mother also speaks about what it was like waiting, not knowing if she would ever see her only son alive again.
This is an amazing real life story of maritime survival, which miraculously turned out to have a happy ending… but the details of the ordeal are still very raw for those who were involved. The following video captures it all…
HN NOTE: The following video is 33 minutes long, but exceptionally worthwhile IMHO… It was impossible to cut parts out, as there was so much great stuff to take away from today’s event. Thank you YPD for bringing everyone together today!
