Some amazing video showing the daring rescue of a teenager from a Norwegian tall ship in the North Sea.

According to reports the rescue took place Tuesday, March 21 approximately 110 miles from shore in the Norwegian North Sea after the Captain of the training ship Christian Radich requested an medevac of a 16 year old boy who had been unconscious after falling and hitting his head.

During the rescue the wind was reported to be 35 knots and the configuration of the three-masted tall ship combined with the sea conditions made it difficult for the helicopter to get close to the vessel.
