The Air Force has released video of its 669 search and rescue unit that brought to safety the pilot and navigator of an F-16i training jet whose engines stopped in mid-air Sunday, forcing the two-man team to eject themselves and parachute into the sea as the jet broke up in mid-air.

They had managed to send out a distress call before ejecting from the plane and waited for approximately one hour in the sea until the rescue team brought them out of danger.

Question: Should we wash our hands in the bathroom with soap and water, or by pouring water from a vessel with handles three times, alternating hands?

Additionally, may we dry our hands via an electric dryer?
