A 66-year-old man was airlifted from a yacht after sustaining head injuries while sailing from St Croix to St Thomas in the US Virgin Islands on November 29.
In footage released by the US Coast Guard, a rescue team is seen winching the man, a US citizen, to a rescue helicopter.
The coast guard in San Juan dispatched a team after they received a mayday call from the boat. The injured man and his wife, who was uninjured, were hoisted to safety before being transported to hospital in Puerto Rico, the coast guard said. Credit: US Coast Guard Sector San Juan via Storyful
