563d RQG Airmen rescue injured Mexican sailors
Pararescuemen from the 48th Rescue Squadron, Davis-Monthan Air Force Base, Ariz., prepare to parachute into the ocean from a deployed HC-130J Combat King II aircraft from the 79th RQS to Mexican fishing vessel Tamara as it sailed to Socorro Island, Mexico, July 10, 2019. The pararescuemen intercepted and boarded the Tamara, and provided trauma care for two injured fishermen. Due to the severity of the injuries and the ship’s isolated location, an urgent request was made for the specialized skills of U.S. Air Force Rescue. They quickly stabilized the patients and offered continued care for the rest of the voyage to Socorro Island. (Courtesy photo)
