AFRCC Manages Complex, Multi-Day Mission

A 55th Rescue Squadron HH-60G Pavehawk helicopter hoists a patient and Pararescueman from a Venezuelan skiff 600 nautical miles off the Pacific Coast of Mexico on May 05, 2014. The Pararescuemen (PJ's) are attached with the patients along the side of the litter, to manage the patient and take care of them medically, and keep them stable. PJs guided the patient into the helicopter that transported the injured sailors to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, where they were transferred to a 79th RQS HC-130J Combat King II that will fly them to the University of California, San Diego, Regional Burn Unit.
