Honoring the Heroes of an Historic Sea Rescue
On Sept. 10, 1957, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers hopper dredge William T. Rossell received an award for a spotless two-year safety record. Hours later the Rossell was struck by a freighter. What followed was one of the most dramatic events in the history of the Coos Bay – the helicopter rescue of 15 sailors from the rapidly sinking vessel.
