Medical Helicopter Crashes While On Mission

A medical evacuation helicopter crashed in Ohio while answering a call for help. It isn’t often that the rescuers at an accident need to be rescued themselves, but that’s what happened earlier this week when a medical evacuation helicopter tried to help people who were hurt in a traffic incident.

The helicopter was trying to land yesterday morning on the side of the road when it hit power lines. That crash resulted in all three people on board the helicopter being hurt.

One occupant of the vehicle that was involved in the original crash was pronounced dead at the scene, but the helicopter crew survived with non life threatening injuries.
