June 17, 2022
The U.S. Coast Guard made a daring rescue during the annual marine-based "Race to Alaska" between Washington State and Alaska. No motors are allowed in the 750-mile journey and race organizers say turbulent waters capsized several boats. The Coast Guard hoisted several people out of the water by helicopter. They were taken to the hospital to be treated for hypothermia. This was the sixth annual race. Inside Edition Digital has more.
