The Carnival cruise ship "Valor" sped to help. Passengers watched from all decks as three men were pulled to safety. The boat's owner, Wes Demott, says it was his home and he'll likely never see it again.
"The clothes we have on are the entirety of our wardrobe," said Demott.
"It was pretty rough that day so we knew pretty much instantly that they were out of place, they weren't supposed to be there," said Carl Ray, who witnessed the rescue.
"It's a miracle that they were saved and we were able to help them out," said another witness.
All three men who were rescued are okay. A cat was also saved from the boat.
