Video: NYPD Choppers Rescue Swimmers In Brighton

Ever seen a helicopter land on Brighton Beach? Like, actually on the beach? If not, watch the above video, because then you can say you have!

According to a Fox report, two people were stranded in the waters off Brighton Beach on Saturday. NYPD choppers arrived at the scene and plucked one of them – a 46-year-old woman – out of the waters using a basket. Police divers helped the other person – the woman’s 21-year-old son – swim to shore. They were both taken to the hospital but are expected to be fine.

Anyone have any information on how they got all the way out there? Did you witness the incident? Let us know!
