Associated Press

A crew member was killed and three others were missing in the Atlantic Ocean after a 165-foot freighter capsized Wednesday, apparently due to shifting cargo, the U.S. Coast Guard said.

Three other men stranded on the hull of the Haitian-registered Aristeo and a fourth in the water were rescued by Coast Guard helicopter 35 miles offshore, Petty Officer Brenda Toledo said.
