That's why S&R are there

Search and Rescue Teams are there for those people who do their best to stay safe while doing the things they enjoy. In this news story, the boat developed a leak off Cannon Beach and they called a mayday into the Coast Guard. The helicopter arrived in time to help the 4 life jacketed men to shore.
It's not for those idiots who, with a blizzard in the forecast, climb into the mountains without the proper equipment. That's a recipe for disaster and they get what they deserve. My opinion, anyway.
I thought it was great to see something good in the news for once. Well, maybe not so much for the boat owner...
