Rescue swimmers are heros.

The air crews of the rescue helicopters are heros.

These two videos are impressive.

The videos show rescue in 70 foot eve conditions. Very Impressive!

On the Sydney Hobart video, the police ambulance rescue helicopter lands with just 40 seconds of fuel left (the engine ran out of fuel 40 seconds after touching land (at nearest point of land after rescuing the man overboard survivor). That is really cutting it close!

But it saved the man who was overboard, and boy was he lucky to be found in those seas, without any life vest or floatation device or light or anything (he was wearing only his long johns). Lucky guy!
