Thirty-eight people died: 17 were passengers and 21 crew. Seventy others made their way through crashing surf to shore and were aided by local people including Seth Kinman and Augustus Berding.
Not sure what to say about the UFO. There was some super secret Navy stuff going on in the vicinity, but that was years ago.
