They pulled me up, and when they pulled me up from the boat, I didn't see any of my family. But I believe I survived by God and by Good Samaritans.>> But her three children, husband, in-laws, and other relatives were not so lucky. In all, 17 people were killed when the boat sank, 9 of them from the Coleman family.

Life jackets were on board, but Coleman says the captain told passengers they didn't need to put them on.>> If I was able to get a life jacket, I could've saved my babies cuz they could've at least floated up to the top, and somebody could've grabbed them and I wasn't able to do that.

>> The National Transportation Safety Board is now investigating the incident. NTSB member Earl Waner says winds hit 73 miles per hour.>> Put that in context, hurricane force winds are usually considered starting at 75, that's only two miles an hour difference.>> A camera from onboard the boat has been recovered by divers and will be analyzed by the NTSB.
