Start at 5:55 for the actual story of incidence on French River last summer.
good use of Inreach and then cell phone to get situation assessed.
Amazing helicopter pilot skills!

Thanks for posting that Cheryl. I was on the river that day with 2 friends and the helicopter made a number of passes over us for quite some time...so much so, that I double-checked my Zoleo device to see if I had somehow tripped the emergency rescue button by mistake. I couldn't figure out why the helicopter was doing that. I, too, have a red canoe like the people in the video and it seems we were just slightly upriver from them, so I'm guessing the pilot thought we were the party in need of help. I'm glad the young lady got the help she needed and now the mystery of the hovering rescue helicopter is solved for me!
