Amazing river rescue by crane

Rescue

Cannot play media. Sorry, this media is not available in your territory.

A woman was caught in the rough water below a dam in Des Moines in the USA.

Rescue boats couldn't get to her, so a construction worker was lowered by crane to pluck her from the waves, and deposit her in the boat.
