A crew member from the ship that encountered Somali pirates has told his church congregation he's glad to be home. William Rios spoke at Second St. John Baptist Church in Harlem on Sunday.

With his wife and son by his side, he described his ordeal. He said the pirates had guns while the crew only had knives.

Rios told the small congregation that the crew shut off the power on the Maersk Alabama so that the pirates couldn't take it anywhere.
