VIDEO: Driving boats, riding in planes, and learning the ins and outs of helicopter rescues - may sound like an action movie, but it's a reality for some east metro kids. WCCO went out with Ramsey County Sheriff's rescue team as a group of eager teens hit the water, too. Paw Htoo of St. Paul says, "I think it's really nice, this is a great opportunity for us." The Learning Jet program is hosting this first responders camp - and Paw is responding well, "I like helping people so they talk about CPR so I was really interested when we talked about it ." Tahjai Green is intrigued as well - his favorite part, "Probably seeing the fire trucks shoot the water." The students learned about fire rescues and now they are learning about the heaviness of water rescues.
