Israeli Submarine Rescues Swimmer
An unnamed Israeli submarine rescued a swimmer who had been swept out to sea by the tide earlier this week:
The submarine crew spotted the man showing signs of weakness after it came to the surface around five nautical miles (nine kilometers) from Haifa port late Tuesday morning.I'm assuming the boat was on the surface when they saw him, although it would have been more dramatic for them to surface near a guy who's thinking he's near the end. Has your boat ever saved anyone in danger of the Perils of the Sea? Or did your boats only use your stealth for Evil (like using the periscope to videotape people engaged in "private" activities on the deck of their boat when they thought no one was around, then showing it to the crew on the mess decks)?
The crew raised the man aboard and a medic gave him first aid.
I earlier recounted my best sea story about saving someone at sea here. It involves California jet skiers, so you know it's funny.
