Unbelievable CG helicopter rescue video

I have recently stumbled upon this amazing video on an Italian Coast Guard helicopter rescue.

The CG performed a very difficult helicopter rescue of sailors on M/V Gelso after ship ran aground near Siracusa, Sicily during a storm.

Wow, beaut flying! Scary stuff, too. Would you have the courage to keep your eyes open as they pulled you up? don't know if I would!

Who scorns the calm has forgotten the storm.
