My friend Rich and the helicopter we went to see. He lives next door to the hospital and has seen this helicopter land many times, including FIVE minutes before I got there, when it landed for the health fair.
FIVE MINUTES! and you would have seen it in the air.
Can you see how small the area is that they slide the trauma victim in? I asked the pilot what do you do if it is a 6'7" 350 pound man, as in a basketball/football player.
His answer was they don't transport if they don't fit weight land height limit. The fuel is 100 gallons of weight and he said it would not lift off. OY
SOOOO I am now on a diet...... I fit under the height limit....and the weight limit, but what about the Fit In that slot limit?
They sit in seats at the head of the person, there is KNEEL only room beside the victim.
I started to hyperventilate looking at this and had to move on.
ONE of my many fears, is Tight Spaces. OY Vey
