The Korea Coast Guard invited two U.S. Coast Guard officers, including Colonel John Walter Reed, head of the Charleston branch of the U.S. Coast Guard, to hold a presentation on the "Golden Ray" rescue case.
About 100 people attended the presentation, including police officers who perform search and rescue-related tasks at the Korea Coast Guard and its agencies across the country.
Colonel John Walter Reed led rescue operations and other operations at the site from the beginning of the "Golden Ray" accident, and played a role in sharing swift information, including rescue situations, with Korea. Douglas Stephen Martin, the head of a professional rescue company that rescued four of our crew members, was also on hand.
They announced the situation at the scene that was urgent at the time of the accident, and explained the U.S. Coast Guard's guidelines and strategies for the operation of search and rescue operations.
