The crew of the Maersk Alabama, the ship with 20 Americans aboard hijacked by Somali pirates this morning, has reportedly already retaken the ship from the scurvy buccaneers. Whoa, movielike, action film, what's happening?
The company hasn't officially confirmed this yet, but it seems to be true:
American crew members aboard a U.S.-flagged ship have regained control of the vessel hijacked by pirates off the coast of Somalia Wednesday, FOX News confirms.
One pirate is reportedly in custody. A U.S. official said the status of the other pirates is unknown but they were reported to "be in the water."
"All the crew members are trained in security detail in how to deal with piracy," Maersk CEO John Reinhart told reporters. "As merchant vessels we do not carry arms. We have ways to push back, but we do not carry arms."
Clearly, Steven Seagal was the ship's cook. [Fox News]
