I was the winchman on this rescue, and remember it very well. i still meet with my two divers every year, glad that it is been visited , would love to have the log , as we have the lifejacket that one crew member wrote on after the rescue, it read, To the angels who come in the guise of men. the lord has chosen you to perform the most profound of miricals. save life. you are what the world was made for!!
