I'm thinking this would make a great action scene.
Margaret Bourke-White grabbed the camera(s) she thought would be most useful and IIRC took pictures in the lifeboat. I don't recall what if anything she did with any exposed film she may have had, but you can find the info in her autobiography "Portrait of Myself". Worth reading for the information concerning photojournalism in this era.
