From the Air Safety Institute's "There I was..." podcast—

Join us on an adventure in the Caribbean as we talk to Ed Regensburg, Cirrus, and Lt. Jillian Harner, commander of a US Coast Guard HC-144.
 
Flying home after a trip to St. Croix, Ed was piloting a Cirrus SR22 with his friend, Dan Tucker, when a drop in oil pressure and subsequent engine failure forced them to pull the plane’s parachute and land in the Atlantic Ocean. Meanwhile, a Coast Guard HC-144, led by Lt. Jillian Harner, heard the distress call and began the search and rescue mission.

Listen to the Full ASI There I was...podcast to hear Ed Regensburg and Jillian Harner story.

Below are some photos from Ed and Dan's incident.
