A news cameraman was filming aerial shots of emergency response to a truck rollover east of Perth, Australia when the helicopter crashed near where rescue crews were working. A spokesman for the Australian Transport Safety Bureau said they had gotten reports that the helicopter, a Bell 206, hit the ground hard while it was filming a traffic incident at Baskerville. A spokesman for the Fire and Emergency Services Association told AAP the helicopter was on its side in a paddock. The tail section was broken off.

Both cameraman Adam Delmage and the pilot survived with relatively minor injuries. The incident has been described as an emergency landing by the pilot. The pilot acted quickly to prevent a fire by having the firemen put foam on the still running turbines. Cameraman Adam Delmage was flung from the rolling chopper. The Australian Transport Safety Bureau will investigate to find the cause of the crash

This video may depict a firefighter scene from the 1920’s, but you’ll probably recognize basic themes from your everyday shift. Like navigating difficult, sometimes non-yielding  traffic.

This video may be comically exaggerated, but I’m sure EMT’s everywhere have stories of patients who seriously injure themselves by doing stupid things. We certainly feel a great sense of empathy for the patient’s pain & responsibility to care for the patient in the best way possible. Having said that, we sometimes can’t help feeling frustrated when the injury was easily avoidable.  Feel free to elaborate in the comments on your own exasperation when the patient could’ve avoided injury with a little common sense.

I’ve known about this cute safety video for a little while now. However, I wasn’t sure if I should post it due to it’s dash of morbidity. Then I thought: why don’t you decide? Let me know what you think in the comments.
