Hawaii ocean rescue caught on camera by stranded teenager

Yahoo! National News - Wed, 08/06/2014 - 06:55
A teenager cast adrift along with seven crewmates when their boat overturned in Hawaii captured their dramatic helicopter rescue from choppy waters on a small video camera. The boaters encountered huge waves on Sunday as they were headed between the islands of Oahu and Molokai within the Ka'iwi Channel, said Honolulu lifeguard Jeff Kozlovich who was one of the boaters. After an hour and fifteen minutes of bobbing in the ocean as they held onto the kayaks, the group spotted a rescue helicopter, which made three trips to return the eight boaters - four adults and four teenagers - to Oahu, Kozlovich said.  He said one teenager, identified by ABC News as 15-year-old Mark Reeves, recorded the dramatic rescue on his GoPro camera, a small, rugged device often used by outdoor sports participants to record their exploits. Once on board the helicopter, the boys flash the Hawaii "hang loose" sign with their hands.

Director Joan Rhoades brought the 700-page book to the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum in May to determine whether an inscription inside was made by the former president who worked to free the country's slaves through the Emancipation Proclamation. (AP Photo/Courtesy of the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum)SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) — For years, librarians at a small central Illinois library gossiped that a tattered book lying on one of its shelves justifying racism may have been in the hands of none other than Abraham Lincoln, the Great Emancipator.
