Rescue At Sea, 1 Critical

August 23rd, 2013-Shortly after first light, rescuers were scrambled to rescue a fishing boat in hot water and cold seas.  The 30 foot boat had lost it's engine and was bashing against the rocks, near the English town of Blythe, Northumberland.

Two of the fishermen scrambled to shore.  However, a third man was stuck in the surf as a massive swell slapped him against the rocks.

The coastguard was unable to lift a stretcher up the steep rocks.  As a result, they brought in a rescue helicopter, which saved the man and saved the day.
