Medical Helicopter Hits Power Line And is Forced To Land

Quote:
COUNCIL BLUFFS, Iowa -- The crew and a patient in a medical helicopter had a close call on Nov 5 2009.

The chopper was called to transport a person who fell off a ladder on the east side of Council Bluffs around 6 p.m.

As the helicopter was taking off, its tail hit a power line. The pilot was able to land safely and called an ambulance to transfer the patient to the hospital.

A field caught fire from a transformer on the power line. Firefighters quickly put out the blaze.

Pottawattamie County Sheriff investigators said the chopper had minor damage and was still on the ground Thursday morning.

As soon as I saw that orange glow I thought, "oooohhh shit!!"

Then I thought, "At least now they can see where the live wire is"

Probably scared the patient. Thought he was going to get help and disaster happens, then everything is alright again.

Re: Medic Chopper Hits Powerlines

Why didn't they call an ambulance to begin with??
I mean if you are fucked up to the point that you need to be air-lifted to the hospital... shouldn't you have had some sort of triage FIRST???
