    Rescue at sea

    We have accidents and we have rescue. Here is a well illustrated Medevac at sea in rough condition: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T6vzsY_nML8#t=125

    Very impressive piloting and crew aboard the rescue helicopter. SAR at sea in such conditions must be one of the most testing situations a pilot can find him/herself in. A lot of people owe their lives to the skill of such air crews.
    Your charts, your radar, your eyes and ears - if all 4 agree, you may proceed with caution.

              That was sure a lucky ditch.

            Another rescue that went well thanks to professional Rescuers and Survival suits for the crew: http://gcaptain.com/video-daring-res...content=261222

            I noticed that the propeller was still turning at the boat capsized and sunk.

              The weird thing is that the propeller starts rotating when the vessel goes under.
              Luckily there wasn't too much debris in the water, that can really make it hard to rescue people from the water.

            I don't know if video of this accident and rescue has been posted on CVF before, but here is a videos showing the Spanish cargo ship Luno being blown onto rocks and breaking up:

                The fishing vessel Oestbanken went down in a storm off Finnmark in January this year.
                Here is a long and detailed interactive video of the rescue operation. Text and comments in Norwegian only, but some dramatic video clips at the end does not need text or comments: http://www.vg.no/spesial/2015/ostbanken/

                    A plucky old chap has been rescued from his 24 ft. sailboat in the North Sea while under way from Lerwick on Shetland to Norway: http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-scotland-...tland-34462061

                    I particularly like this statement from the Total spokesman; "The Alwyn North platform did not go to muster and no plans were made for evacuation."

                    I would think not. What could this little plastic thingy do to the platform anyhow??

                    Just in case you wonder what the Alwyn North Platform look like, here it is:



                    It is the one to the right, with two derricks.

                        Heart in your mouth stuff. But in the second one - the man and his cat - there didn't seem to be anyone on the spot ready to grab him and make sure he got over.
