Another EMS Tragedy

Sadly yet another med helicopter accident - early this morning in aurora IL, just outside Chicago, a med helicopter crashes killing all four aboard - pilot, paramedic, nurse and 13 month old patient on interfacility transfer. Operated by Angel Air this was the third crash for the program with the other two being in 2003 (pilot fatality) and 2007 (no injuries). God speed to crew - prayers to families and coworkers. Sadly this is happening all too often.

Got a phone at 6am yesterday right after it happened from a close friend of mine, a flight paramedic in PA. These guys are heros. You're sick and they put their life on the line for someone they don't know.

Always a reminder of how fortunate we are.

That is very sad, I think many people are overlooked for the jobs that they perform being military, fire fighter, police, doctors, nurses...the list can go on and on...
