Watch Coast Guard swimmer’s super powers on this video

Coast Guard crew aboard a Jayhawk helicopter out of Coast Guard Air Station Sitka helped get a fishing boat’s bilge pumped out before it sank on Tuesday near Kake in Southeast Alaska.

A rescuer swimmer swam through the chop to the vessel, and then the crew aboard the helicopter lowered a pump and stayed nearby until the Coast Guard Cutter Anacapa arrived to assist. Video is courtesy of U.S. Coast Guard. Turn up the volume.

  • Semper Paratus!!!

  • How heroes work!

  • It amazes me the amount of practice and training these men and women do to be able to accomplish what they do. That part always goes unseen by the general public.
