Coast Guard rescue swimmers risk all to save lives
from How Stuff Works
Former Coast Guard helicopter rescue swimmer Joseph "Butch" Flythe recalls one of his early rescues, in which he jumped out of a helicopter into the water 100 miles off North Carolina's Cape Hatteras to help two men whose sailboat had capsized in a squall. When it came time to help them get into the basket lift that the copter had lowered, the second man became alarmed by the copter's rotor wash.
