Family shipwreck drama gets network airing

The CBS news program “48 Hours” will present the story of a California couple cruising with their four young children aboard a 55-foot catamaran that grounds on a French Polynesian reef. Twelve-foot seas destroy the vessel and disable all radios and the satellite phone. The only thing that did survive this catastrophe was their McMurdo 406 MHz EPIRB. The program airs at 10 p.m. Saturday.
