Heroic Rescues at Sea
True Stories of the Canadian Coast GuardBook - 2002
The sea can be a treacherous place. Fortunately for those who face disaster at sea there is a highly trained group of people who make it their life's work to race to the rescue. These are the marine search and rescue workers of the Canadian Coast Guard. They do what most of us would not even contemplate; brave the elements in their rescue vessels, often acting as paramedics, midwives and firefighters on the water. They go out in unimaginable conditions and search long, harrowing hours for missing ships and sailors. These are their stories.
