I have two tell ya, there was not a lot I could do when we got there but there were two friends of ours who did not think twice about diving in and rescuing those people knowing that there was a boat running circles on its own. Those guys are the real heros.

Thats what we were told by the guy who actually saw it. The wind was blowing very hard and the water was pretty rough. I was also told that they were going extremly fast.
