Rare Real Cam: Dramatic Helicopter Rescue of Man Who Fell Off Big Sur

2018-10-24 03:17
The California Highway Patrol (CHP) on October 17 released video of a helicopter rescue of a man said to have fallen into the ocean off Big Sur on October 14. The man dragged himself out of the sea but was then stranded on a rocky, brushy outcrop next to McWay Falls, a waterfall that drops into the ocean at Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park. The CHP praised the pilot for holding the helicopter “completely steady with only a small portion of the left skid touching the rock.” The pilot’s “technical competence” allowed a paramedic to walk out and help the man onto the helicopter to safety, the CHP said.
