Description
Few sea tragedies are as horrific as the calamity that struck the crew and passengers of the French frigate Medusa in 1816. After grounding on a sandbar off the Senegal coast, the ship broke up, forcing more than 150 survivors onto a hastily built raft. When rescued two weeks later, only 15 were still alive. Some were murdered or swept overboard by storms; others were left to bake in the sun, burning to death and becoming food for those remaining. The story of the ordeal circulated the globe, and remains one of the most famous shipwrecks from the age of sail. British journalist Alexander McKee recounts those 13 hellish days aboard the raft, and how the instinct to survive led to mutiny, murder, and cannibalism.
