Abby Sunderland's story of courage on high seas

Abby Sunderland was just 16 years old when she set sail in January 2010, hoping to become the youngest person to sail solo around the world. But three months into her journey, a 50-foot wave damaged her sailboat, leaving Abby stranded in the middle of the Indian Ocean and the focus of a dramatic search and rescue.

Abby was found safe and sound, and she tells her story in her new book "Unsinkable: A Young Woman's Courageous Battle on the High Seas." She joined Ali Velshi and Christine Romans on "American Morning" to explain what being stranded on open ocean was like.
