Parajumpers rescue sailor off Baja California coast

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif.

A helicopter carrying Guardian Angel parajumpers from the California Air National Guard's 129th Rescue Wing reached the ship Thursday.

A medic rappelled onto its deck, secured the injured seaman in a stretcher, and hoisted him back onto the chopper.

It flew to Cabo San Lucas where a C-130 was waiting to fly the victim to a San Diego trauma center where he's being treated for head injuries.
