Tragic EMS story for those interested in the industry. A small taste of what you could end up on in the public safety/EMS sides of flying. Kudos to the Skylife pilot as well. It is a pretty heavily wooded area.

If one is considering EMS, I suggest avoiding all knowledge of the patient. The job is from here to there as fast and safe as possible, same/same any helo job. "All bleeding stops, and all patients die eventually, and if YOU drop the baby, pick it up".

Unloaded guns are accidents waiting to happen. Never point a weapon at anything you don't want to shoot.

I always appreciate EMS, they help people in emergency and provide medical help at point when it is necessary many of my friends have narrated stories of such incident and some Health service providers name such as Ziqitza (http://zhl.org.in/).

Wow this is a walk down memory lane.  I was on the call that I posted about flying an LE helicopter.  I dropped off my TFO off on a rock and then he went up and cleared the scene.  I actually knew both of the families and the child personally and knew that when I was working the call.  Talk about a small world.

It was a great job done by DPS and Air Evac (PHI). I wish I could say the same for Air Method's flight following.
