Kayak rescue slideshow from AK

I can't imagine how cold this guy was when they unpinned his kayak from the log, solid work by the Anchorage FD.

Holy sh*t. Busting out the chainsaw, looks like a scary rescue. Hey, they even saved his boat! And very nice work by the FD.

How does that even happen? Did this guy happen to pin right next to the FD geared up and practicing SWR with a chainsaw handy or what? Crazy!

Holy shit balls, I couldn't watch the vid but looking at the pics that was amazing.


That para/ff in the yellow helmet was not going to let that dude go.

Job well done boys.

Standing in a rubber boat on cold moving water running a chain saw out over the upstream edge near full arm's length right next to your partner who's helping someone keep their head up. No rush, chain saw dude, he's only going to die if you don't cut that tree while keeping from turning us all into hamburger. That man is my hero.
