Day 1: Coast Guard Rescues Paraglider – 2009 Video of the Year Nominee


We arrived on scene to see our survivor drifting
into a tidal cave with her paraglider apparatus wrapped around her legs. Our rescue swimmer
was deployed to the cave and actually swam in out of sight.He used the cave hydraulics
to recover her outside the cave where he cut her loose from the paraglider and we loaded
her into the rescue basket and recovered her into the helicopter in a hypothermic state.
