This video involved an ocean rescue that would’ve been too risky for lifeboats.
Taking one look at this situation can convey how dangerous this was. The men on the rocks were repeatedly hit by waves, not wanting to be sucked into the ocean.
In the knick of time, a helicopter arrived, along with rescuers that rappelled down to try to get to the stranded men.
Watch to see how it goes down.
