Spectacular Air Rescue Of Crewman From US Navy Submarine

The US Coast Guard has released their best videos from 2009, and this crewman emergency medical rescue mission from a moving nuclear US Navy submarine - using a MH-60 Jayhawk helicopter - just blew me away.

The Coast Guard evacuated the crewman from a unnamed US Navy Los Angeles-class nuclear attack submarine. The submarine was cruising through an undisclosed location off the the coast of Washington, on September 29, 2009. They called the Coast Guard at 5.50pm, and the Jayhawk helicopter intercepted the submarine at 7.12pm, picking up the crewman, and moving him to the Oregon Health and Science University in Portland, Oregon.
