The crew of Rescue 912, Jonathon Groten, Aaron Noble, Mark Vokey, Bradley Hiscock and Jeffrey Warden, rescued three seabird hunters from Indian Bay near Gander and for their extraordinary efforts in adverse conditions are being honored with Sikorsky’s Humanitarian Award.

A Sikorsky RH-4 made the first documented rescue by helicopter on Nov. 29, 1945, so it’s not surprising that Sikorsky sponsors the HAI Humanitarian Award. This year’s award goes to the Gander, Newfoundland-based flight crew of a Royal Canadian Air Force search-and-rescue helicopter for a successful rescue accomplished under extreme weather conditions on Feb. 9, 2013.
