One of the pilots was almost unresponsive when they pulled him into the helicopter. The helicopter arrived just as the tail of the aircraft was going underwater. When the Pilots ditched, both engines had failed. Take note, it was not a case of the pilot shutting the wrong engine down. Try ditching at night with only your standby instruments working due to loss of generator power. From the sounds of it it appears as though the landing was quite violent. Kudos to the helicopter and boat crew that picked them up for being there as quick as they were. As for the helicopter pilots, they flew straight to the hospital with the seriously injured pilot. That hospital is difficult to find at night much less land on it! Great job to all!

Someone please explain the "Heading Title of Harrowing"!
How can rescuing two pilots at night and in the Ocean be "harrowing"? I'm thinking more like a "Miracle" and dam good job by all!
