Gotta Watch: Chopper rescue; border tunnels; 'Girl Talk'; Conan

Wayward snowboarder – This video looks like it could be pulled right from a major Hollywood action flick. But it's an actual rescue by the National Guard of a snowboarder who lost his way. And as you might expect, this snowboarder has a pretty chill attitude about the whole ordeal.

Beneath the border – Elaborate does not even begin to describe the network of tunnels built between the U.S. and Mexico. Our Rafael Romo takes us inside this maze used for smuggling people and drugs. Here, border agents have the grisly task of finding signs of human presence, which sometimes includes finding bodies of those who didn't make it across.

'Girl Talk' – We're still not quite sure how Gregg Gillis went from bio engineering nerd to a music artist with a cult-like following. But we are sure that this looks like one heck of a show (whether you like his music or not).

    Why patrol underground tunnels? How about stuffing them back with dirt or cement....

    I used be a crew member on a UH-60 like this and did similar rescues in the Cascade Mountains of Washington State. It brings back a lot of memories seeing this. Thank you to all that keep it going from the pilots, to the crew members, the mechanics to medics.
