6428 There has been a call to 911 emergency when somebody is washed away wandering too far from the beach. The emergency H.Q. knows who to go to - the rescue squad.
A rescue jet ski is there in minutes and is whaling water into the air and leaving white foam behind it. The Res Q diver heads for the area where the boy was last seen and soon spots splashing and bubbles. He dives and after some careful searching, reaches for the boy. He didn't have much air in his helmet and it was starting to bother him.
Finally, he reaches out and activates his air suit and grabs the victim just before losing him. The air pulls them up quite quickly and the diver hauls the dazed guy back where a stretcher is waiting for him.

This set is awsome! It's a small jet ski that's different slightly than race jet skis. It includes a black aerodynamic piece similar to the large piece with race sets. In race jet skis there is a one piece bottom. Instead, with this set there's a 4x6 yellow plate and sloped piece in front to make up for the one-piecer. I like this better.
What's really cool is that it comes with a yellow 2x3 sloped brick with the pre-printed rescue logo which comes up better in yellow than on black.
The mini-fig has a cool torso with reflector hot orange marks. The torso is printed on the back too with the rescue logo. The first time I saw printing on both sides of a mini-fig was the Infomaniac mini-fig that came with Lego Island. I thought it was a special figure and I wouldn't find this elsewhere but they're popping up in '98 sets. The legs are those of Blacktron 2 figures (white legs with black connectors), Cool!
Buy trillions of these! They come in polybags and you'll probably have trouble finding them since every time I go to any store, the next day they are sold out.
