Day 3: Coast Guard Video of the Year

Video of the Year contest

Welcome to day three of voting for Coast Guard Video of the Year!

Earlier this week, we offered you a sampling of the top 11 Coast Guard videos of 2010. Now, it is time for you to vote on your favorites and help us select your top three videos.

Our third video features the rescue of two elderly people who jumped into the water from a disabled sailboat in order to be hoisted out of danger by a Coast Guard helicopter. Petty Officer 3rd Class Jacob Warner, the rescue swimmer, narrates the b-roll video. This case was Warner’s first rescue as an aviation survival technician.
