Video shows rescue from capsized vessel

The two boaters rescued in Jupiter, Fla., after their boat capsized say they are lucky one of them had a waterproof cell phone on them.

Thor Arnold and James Sellers say they were thrown so quickly when their boat flipped, they didn't have time to grab anything.

"Luckily I had my cell phone in my pocket," said Arnold.

Arnold said their 16-foot boat was anchored at the time. He said waves were just a little choppy at first. Then a 5-foot wave hit.
