Reality TV show documents burning yacht rescue

A pair of South Florida boat captains made a narrow escape Tuesday morning, helped by a good Samaritan, when a 56-foot Carver yacht they were on caught fire and burned to the waterline.

Luckily, Country Music Television's new reality series "Danger Coast" was filming a group of Miami-Dade firefighters for its premier episode on Friday, when the 56-foot yacht Kemosabe went up in smoke with passengers on board.

With camera crews in tow, the fire rescue boat rushed to the scene and found the couple had already abandoned ship.
