A video filmed from a rescue helicopter shows how two fishermen were rescued from an inflatable lifeboat after their ship sank on Thursday off the coast of northern Norway.


The vessel sent a distress call at ten o’clock Thursday. Approximately half an hour later, the fishermen were lifted on board a rescue helicopter owned by Bristow, a company that provides search and rescue services for the oil and gas industry.
The video was filmed from a military Orion aircraft that also responded to the emergency.
The two fishermen are in good health and were transported to Hammerfest after the rescue.
