But one of the Akron cable rings breaks and the sailors are unable to hold her. All let go of the lines except for three sailors, two of whom fell to their deaths. Scenes are shown of the remaining sailor, Bud Cowart of Sand Springs, Oklahoma, as he hangs on for more than an hour until the USS Akron crew pulls him through a port hole to safety aboard the air ship. Views shot about a week later show officers inside the Akron and Sailor Cowart aboard the airship.
