1988 Vietnamese Rescue Caught on Tape

I just noticed the Star-Bulletin is posting old stock footage on youtube.

You can see the majority of the clips here.

The following clip is pretty interesting to watch as well as listening to the dialog that happened on this evening.

On Sept. 15, 1988, a group of 42 Vietnamese who had fled Communist rule in their country were rescued by an Exxon oil tanker. Hawaii resident Barry Solywoda, then captain of the ship, recorded the rescue.
