"Abandon Ship: The Sinking of the SV Concordia" recounts the events of Feb. 17, 2010, when a microburst hit the Canadian tall ship, causing her to capsize with 64 aboard.

With her captain below deck, no way to send a mayday and only four life rafts, the crew barely escaped. As the rafts drifted from the floating debris, the survivors had no idea if any one knew they were alive or would ever come to rescue them.

The documentary debuts Thursday on Canada's CBC-TV.
