Tampa Bay Quarterback, Brothers help rescue 4 people involved in helicopter crash

HILLSBOROUGH COUNTY, Florida. — A quarterback for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers became an unexpected hero Thursday when a helicopter crashed into Hillsborough Bay.

At a Friday news conference, Gabbert said he and his two brothers were cruising nearby on jet skis when they heard a “faint noise” south of Davis Island and rushed toward it.

The brothers got to the crash site and found a sinking helicopter and 4 people who needed rescue.

According to Gabbert, he was able to get two of the people out of the water onto his jet ski while his brothers helped a third person. A fourth inmate was rescued from the water by authorities, who he said arrived in record time.

Gabbert says he’s no hero but glad he was in the right place at the right time.

“I did the right thing,” he said. “You would do exactly the same in this situation. I happened to be in this situation and fortunately everything turned out positively.

According to authorities, no one was injured in the accident.
