    My cousin in law flies on a medivac in Tenn. Her medical helicopter has had a few close calls.

    YOu're right; I think they risk their lives to a certain extent going to get patients, or delivering organs, etc.

    I seem to remember another medical plane crashing recently? Wasn't it just a few months ago?

    I think IIRC this is the 2nd medivac to crash within the past couple of months. I don't remember where the other was, but it went down picking up or delivering organs for transplant.

    it is very risky. i know one girl who has said that one time they almost hit a radio tower... aren't those supposed to be lit up?!?!!? mostly in poor weather and poor visibility. if you get stuck out there... it is bad.

    scary!

    It was a transplant team from the University of Michigan Hospital picking up donor organs in Milwaukee. They went down in Lake Michigan. So sad.

    Awe, that is so sad. What a tragedy.

    I have a friend in Alaska who is a medivac nurse up there. They have to fly to Washington with the worst cases. She has told me that they have had to land a few times due to trouble.
