January 10, 2022 | Hosted By: Jason Quinn
In this episode of The Real ResQ, we are joined by Tyler Gaenzle USCG RS 797.His stories from being a Rescue Swimmer are incredible. His first case, with a victim who fell down a cliff, landed in a tree and had a broken back and shattered ankle. Ty brings us through everything he did in that case which earned him a Coast Guard Commendation Medal.The second case was another tough one.He deployed into 15ft waves to help a sailboat in distress.Pitching and rolling, he helped a couple and their dog off the boat and back to safety. Next we get into his case where he earned The Meritorious Service Medal for helping save a fellow Coast Guardsman who fell 400’ down the side of a mountain. He tells us of his last case while in the CG where a boat taking on water turned into a boat sinking and pulling him down with it.We don’t end there either, as a current U.S. Air Force Pararescue, he tells two of his cases that happen in Alaska.One on the side of a mountain and the other of a bear mauling.Enjoy!
