VIDEO: Rescuer Ducks & Dodges Helicopter Rotors In Austrian Recue Accident

By

This extremely close call happened a few years back on the top of Großglockner, Austria’s tallest mountain. According to The Telegraph the helicopter was sent to rescue a man suffering from heart trouble.  During the airlift attempt the helicopter spun out of control and nearly clipped a rescuer on the ground. Luckily the rescuer avoided the rotor and the pilot managed land the chopper and avoid falling off the sheer cliff. Incredibly the pilot, flight rescuer and patient were all unharmed, only a paramedic on board suffered minor injuries. This is something straight out of a movie.
