The Doctor/s that saved these guys were awesome, I'd love to meet any guy his age that would dive under a pile of floating wreckage, let alone succeed in pulling a man out and saving his life.

He didnt give up. 3 tries.

Whole scene stunk of fuel for hours after.

Anyone diving was in fuel contaminated water.

Kudos to all the rescuers.

The doctor that performed CPR was a lady that lives right next door.

Broken collarbone and broken leg.

It was amazing through all that activity, the structure of the windshield on that Nortech didnt budge an inch.
Super strong.

Wow that sucks, but glad everyone is still alive. That boat is nearly brand new - I think last season was its first out on the water.
