Minot Base Chopper Crew Rescue

Posted: Updated:

A helicopter crew from Minot Air Force Base rescued two men from a truck stranded on a flooded road near Savage, Montana this week.

The men from the 54th Helicopter Squadron had just finished a training flight when the call for help came in around Midnight Monday.

Maintenance crew members quickly prepped the chopper for another flight and the crew headed for the scene of the high water in eastern Montana.

They hoisted both men from the bed of their pickup - where they had been stranded by rushing water for about five hours - and took them to the Sidney Airport where emergency medical workers were waiting.

Members of the chopper crew say their training paid off when it came time to make a real-world rescue and they are proud of what their team was able to do.
