(January 25th, 2012) This came from the official website of the US Alaskan Coast Guard (Below) Raw and awesome footage showing the hoisting and rescue of stranded vessel passengers after their ship became lodged in the icy waters of Portage Bay by the United States Coast Guard.
These rescues are more dangerous than it looks, the winds during some of these rescues are gusty and it takes well trained pilots and guardsmen to pull these off and many have died in the process of these rescues in Alaska.
My respects to our US Coast Guard, they are true hero's. We need you guys and too any coast guard who is reading this, thanks from all of us at liveleak.
