Some teens on a bridge decided to start throwing snowballs at a firefighter on a fireboat below. The Firefighter responds in kind, only more so.

Update » A comment on STATter911.com says that this was actually a bridge cleaning crew. There is no such update on the source’s site, Daily Mail. Whoever it was, it’s still funny.

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

Well, that’s one way a firefighter can get a potential suicide victim to come down off the roof.
