A dramatic video recorded by a passenger captures the tense moments when a water taxi captain helps save an unconscious man from the Charleston Harbor.

Responding to an emergency call, the South Carolina captain, Matt Balasso, spotted three men struggling in the water. One of the men had fallen overboard in a medical emergency and the two others were working hard to keep him afloat without sinking.

The crew needed the help of strong passengers to pull the big man onto the pontoon boat’s deck.

The video, shot by a passenger ordered to stay in the stern, was posted by the company, Charleston Water Taxi, on their Facebook page.
