The Coast Guard made an incredible rescue of a fishing crew under harsh conditions, then released a dramatic video of the rescue on its Facebook page.

It took place in Juneau, Alaska, on Sunday, when the Coast Guard received a distress call from a disabled 32-foot fishing vessel in Bristol Bay, USCGNews reported.

The video was released Thursday. It shows guard members being lowered from an Air Station Kodiak MH-60 Jayhawk helicopter in 35-mph winds and 5-foot seas, according to USCGNews.

Watch the daring rescue below:
