Hawaii Rescue

Image via CBC

The CBC is hosting a short piece of video they call "high seas rescue on cam" (embedding is unavailable). They don't identify anything or anyone in the video, or even the location other than to place it somewhere around Hawaii. But what is clear from the minute long video is that a group of tourists headed out on a batch of sit-on-top kayaks. One of them got into trouble (CBC calls it a "sinking vessel") but the group were all wearing PFDs and called for help. Although edited, the footage is an interesting first-person view of what it's like to be rescued by a SAR helicopter.
