[Updated 12:01 p.m.] A helicopter with 19 people on board made an emergency water landing Monday in Scotland.

Lifeboats were launched to help bring people safely back to land.

      You would think a helicopter landing would be more dangerous(deadly) but I guess with good training, it doesn't have to be.

    Whose Navy? Scotland may get a navy depending on their bid for independence from GB goes! Scottish Navy went away in the early 1700's.
