    Great Lakes freighter & Coast Guard rescue-Lake Superior

    Yesterday afternoon this footage was taken as a U.S. Coast Guard helicopter hovered over the iron ore carrier, S/S American Valor. A crew member had taken ill and while close to the shoreline of Manitou Island, on Lake Superior, his fellow crew members safely loaded him into the rescue basket and off he flew. I took this footage, my name is Ed Spicuzza and I work in the engine room as an Oiler. As an extream hobbiest I take my photo and video equipment, along with my portable studio, where I travel. I made this video for the crew but if you at CNN would like the unedited footage with a possible story of interest plese give me a call at. Currently we are heading into a iron ore dock in the Duluth MN area and I should be in range for the remainder of the afternoon. Thank you for your time, Ed Spicuzza www.nauticaljourney.com nauticaljourney@hotmail.com
