This is two people being rescued in high winds by helicopter from the Manawatu Gorge in New Zealand after their truck went off the edge into the river. Two police officers jumped into the freezing cold water to save them and have been described as "heroes" after they spent an hour submerged in the Manawatu River keeping the head of a truck driver above water. Both people in the truck were taken to the hospital and did not have serious injuries. Three of their rescuers were also taken to the hospital but were not admitted. Outstanding joint effort from all the emergency services involved.
