Faulkner Involved In Hurricane Search And Rescue

A hometown boy is making national news after his involvement in the search and rescue of sailors lost in hurricane Julio.

Coast Guard LT Garrett Faulkner, brother of the News Edge's own Travis Faulkner and Hopkinsville native, will appear on Good Morning America Tuesday morning after he piloted the Coast Guard plane that helped three sailors lost when Hurricane Julio brushed past the Hawaiian Islands.

The sailboat was on its way to California when it lost power and was adrift 414 miles off the coast of Oahu. LT Faulkner piloted the HC-130 Hercules into the hurricane to find the 42 foot sailboat with three men onboard.   He and his crew were on scene for more than four hours providing aid to the three men and arranging a pickup. A Good Samaritan container ship agreed to stop and pick up the men up Monday morning. Another Coast Guard plane relieved Faulkner and his crew after several hours. The sailboat was lost but the men were recovered by a Maston container ship and returned to safety.
