SOS: Coast Guard Rescue - Three in a Basket

Posted on: October 7, 2005 | Views: 46 | Comment

Three kids stranded on a roof by Hurricane Katrina are rescued by a Coast Guard helicopter crew.

The Discovery Channel premieres a new series SOS: Coast Guard Rescue with a special one-hour episode on Sunday, October 9, 10 PM (ET/PT), with exclusive footage of the Coast Guard's heroics efforts during the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.

In the premiere episode, the Cape Cod, Mass., and Clearwater, Fla., Coast Guard air crews rush to the Gulf Coast for an unprecedented rescue operation: the aftermath of the destructive Hurricane Katrina. Pilot John Mixon flies his HH-60 Jayhawk in and out of submerged neighborhoods, searching for people trapped in toxic waters. Once residents are found, veteran rescue swimmer A.J. Thompson - lowered by hoists onto rooftops and into windows - saves them. Never-before-seen footage shows dramatic missions from the vantage point of rescuers who have been outfitted with helmet cameras. This unique, up-close perspective on the Katrina catastrophe spotlights the U.S. Coast Guard crews who, as a team, rescued more than 22,000 people in the aftermath's first week.
