First person account of the helicopter accident scene

For months we have had a special link on the side of this blog that links to and shows an excerpt from the Zion Helitack blog. During this fire season they have not posted frequently, because it can be difficult to find an Internet connection on a dusty helibase.

But it turns out that one of the people on the Zion crew, Michael, was in a helicopter headed to the helispot where the accident occurred about the time the helicopter crashed, and played an important role in coordinating the numerous helicopters involved in various tasks related to helicopter water drops and rescue of the injured.

Michael wrote a compelling account that you should read, HERE.
