Helicopter Rescue in Edinburgh

A few days ago I was lucky (unlucky) enough to witness the rescue by helicopter of an Edinburgh car driver!

I had never expected to see such a scene but ….. Och just get on with the story.

I was in town and heard an incredible roaring – turned out to be a helicopter hovering; the winch-man was lowered, the driver attached somehow, the two lifted and then the driver lowered to safety on the nearby pavement.

Was it an exercise?

  1. Sorry!

    A poor story I know .... but .... you should know me by now.

  2. You would need a bus to get to the path from there!

  3. In Dundee they say "If you can walk away from it, it's parked!"
