Gulf Chopper Rescue

A helicopter crashed yesterday afternoon in the Gulf of Mexico with 3 people on board. A good samaratin heard the urgent marine broadcast from the helicopter leasing company, and plucked the 3 people from the water carrying them to a nearby oil rig. The Coast Guard picked them up from the rig and transported them to a Louisiana hospital. There are no reports of injuries. Click here for video of the dramatic rescue.
