Man Says he didn’t notice when Wife Fell off Boat and was Missing for Hours

A man whose wife fell off a boat and was missing for hours says that he did not notice that she had fallen overboard.

The pair were sailing off the coast of Rhode Island when she fell over. She went missing for several hours until a passing boater heard her cries for help on a nearby island. She was suffering from mild hypothermia but refused treatment.

Meanwhile the man continued his journey with the belief that his wife was sleeping below deck. He was found around 2 a.m. with his sailboat run aground. An investigation is underway.
