Lowndes County - Some South Georgia airmen made a life-saving rescue.
The crew from Moody Air Force Base rescued a boater stranded in the Atlantic Ocean about 430 miles east of Jacksonville last week. They were on a routine training mission when they were called in by the Coast Guard, who was unable to get to the victim, because he drifted too far out to sea.
"It was pretty gratifying, and it definitely made all the long training I've been through worth while," said Senior Airman Thomas Pearce, Pararescue Jumper.
"Once we made the decision and started our actual rescue process, we got into the hover and deployed the pj's and they were back on the aircraft departing in less than 15 minutes," said Captain Jeremey Turner, Pilot.
The crew had to work against five to six foot seas and 20 knot winds.
The boater was on a sailing trip and had been adrift at sea for several days.
