Here is a link to a video of a swiftwater hoist rescue we performed last week. View is from hoist mounted camera. Very typical scenario in central Texas, 2 gentlemen stranded in truck with flood water in front and behind their vehicle. Both were uninjured. Please post comments and questions. Are any other hoist capable programs recording operations? If so it would be interesting to post video for others to see...

Nice video, I wish there was audio too.

We aren't equipt with hoist cams, so we don't get to record ours.

As I watched that video, I saw two brave individuals doing something that was very heroic and necessary to bring complete strangers to safety. I know you guys may not hear it all the time (or maybe you do) but thank you for the work you do. I know this may not be the proper venue for this, but I wanted to congratulate and thank all the wonderful and skilled pilots out there that make it possible as well for the rescuers to do their jobs. Together the teams work and that's what so amazing about this line of work... :rolleyes:
