Lone survivor tells of sinking

The sole survivor of a commercial trawler shipwreck that killed six men 65 miles off Cape May, N.J., gravely laid out the scene of the disaster to a Coast Guard inquiry panel. He says he survived by wearing a Neoprene survival suit and clinging to an eight-foot plank until rescuers arrived.
