PITTSBURGH - Pittsburgh leaders are seeking a Homeland Security grant to purchase a new hovercraft for River Rescue crews.
Officials said the hovercraft costs about $100,000 and would be used to glide across ice or shallow water to rescue people in tough spots.
If the grant is approved, the hovercraft could launch into action this summer.
