Air Station San Diego rescue

A Coast Guard rescue swimmer from Air Station San Diego executes a daring rescue of a female victim of a boating mishap. The swimmer holds the victim tightly as they are both hoisted to the helicopter hovering overhead. In 2009, the service responded to over 23,500 search and rescue cases and saved over 4,700 lives.
