You may have seen the terrifying images of flying furniture, falling panels, gushes of icy water on-board the Viking cruise ship last weekend.

A woman from Punta Gorda resident Barbara Wyatt was among those airlifted to safety.
WINK News reporter Erika Jackson has her story of survival. Watch the interview above.
