LOUISIANA (CNN) -- A Louisiana man wanted proof of his harrowing rescue -- so he recorded the video himself.

As coast guard members worked to lift him out of a boat -- he was recording.

It happened Saturday in Otter Bayou near Hopedale.

Two men were on the boat when it became disabled.

A helicopter crew hoisted them out.

The men were not hurt.
