No matter what time of day or night, the RACQ Capricorn Helicopter Rescue Service is dedicated to saving lives at sea. In honor of their 25th anniversary, Allison Hugo remembers the day the squad saved her and her family's lives back in 2014.

The Hugo's boat capsized off the coast of Australia, leaving them stranded in the water amid dangerous weather conditions. The RACQ Capricorn Helicopter Rescue Service responded with a chopper and was able to airlift each family member to safety. Allison is eternally grateful to the rescue team that pulled her family from the water that day, and the Hugo's story serves as a testament to the importance of first responders around the world.
