A helicopter rescue in Arizona didn't go exactly as planned yesterday.
Firefighters were trying to airlift the 74-year-old female victim who had become stuck on a hiking trail. Firefighters from the Phoenix Fire Department felt the best course of action was to airlift the victim off of the mountain.
They were able to secure her in a rescue stretcher, but as the helicopter took off, a line that was supposed to prevent the stretcher from spinning in circles failed, and air turbulence from the helicopter’s rotor caused a burst of turbulence, which sent the elderly woman in an uncontrollable spin.
Thankfully, the woman suffered no injuries as a result of the spinning.
