Helicopter rescue or rehearsal on Zürichsee this afternoon?

I'm wondering if anyone knows why helicopters have been hovering over one of the larger boats for the past two hours. Is it a rescue or is it a rehearsal for a rescue?

Pick up a 20minuten tomorrow morning - it'll be in there if it was something real.

Don't worry if you cannot read German. There will be an 'official' article about it in here by next Tuesday.

Thanks Longbyt. Ich spreche fliessend Deutsch. I did check out the ticker-tape news spots on all the usual local news sites this afternoon and haven't spotted anything yet, so it can't have been too dramatic if it was the real deal. It would be nice to know if they are just rehearsing for a catastrophe if that's what it was.
