Pin rescue video

Wow. A good real life pin rescue, posted on boatwerks if anyone happened to miss it. The guys ankle was trapped and he couldn't even grab the throw ropes tossed at him because he had to maintain an air pocket with his arms.  They used a "V-system with live bait" rescue.  Over 30 minutes later they got him out still trapped in the boat but OK. Wow.
