Joe Klinker, First Coast Guard District public affairs officer. “Reports of persons in the water often mean a difficult search is ahead. To hear the call that he was found and rescued makes it a proud day for those Coast Guard crews.” Aldridge told the helicopter crew he used his rubber boots as flotation devices throughout the ordeal.
