One sailor is dead, and four others are missing from an accident during a yacht race Saturday, April 14.

The Coast Guard released video of their operation that rescued three crew members.

The accident happened during a boat race around the Farallon Islands, 30 miles west of San Francisco. A large wave swept four people off the boat.

The 38-foot yacht ran aground as it turned around to rescue the four who went overboard.

One body was recovered. Four people are still missing.
