The video began by showing the rescue of a family of nine, including a 1-month-old baby. Then, it showed a man wearing a red shirt being rescued from the water.
If you kept your eyes on him, you noticed another life was saved while airmen pulled the man up into the helicopter. He was squeezing a small dog tightly in his arms.
Each rescue shown in the video is incredible. We extend our thanks to the NY Air National Guard for their service!
