A Royal Dutch Shell drilling ship, the Kulluk, ran aground at remote Sitkalidak Island in Alaska. The next day, a U.S. Coast Guard MH-60 Jayhawk helicopter crew flew over the conical drilling rig. The weather conditions were 40-mph winds with 20-foot seas. This footage was shot by Coast Guard Petty Officer 1st Class Sara Francis.
