August 13, 1993 proved to be a memorable day for Brian Brasher, and the six other passengers on their 8-passenger, twin-engine plane. Flying over the Bering Sea on a day where the water temperature was 36 degrees with 3-6 foot swells, their plane began to experience problems, which eventually led to both engines going out. With nowhere else to land, the plane crashed into the sea. Rescuers were dispatched with seven body bags, as no one had ever survived longer than 15 minutes in water that temperature, and no one had ever survived a crash in the Bering Sea. After nearly 65 minutes since the crash, Brian Brasher was rescued from the water. He was the seventh, and final passenger of the plane to be rescued. None of the body bags were needed.
