Looking for a Recuse Video over frozen lake

About 20 years ago maybe, there was an airplane accident that ended up in a frozen lake.

 

I believe a Jetranger pilot maybe won an award helping to save some people including a woman in the frozen water.

 

I was a kid at the time in the UK watching it on the news and i remember being in awe of the skill and action of the pilot (and the whole helicopter thing in general).

 

Anyone have a link to a video or more details of the situation and rescue please?

 

Thanks.

Here are the details:

There was even a movie about it:

Sounds similar to the accident in Washington DC, where the plane hit the bridge & went in river. I seen that rescue on a documentary on TV, ( discovery channel i think)
