Milestone for German Air Medical Team

From RotorHub.com (gave me an excuse to post a picture of a helicopter):

The DRF (Deutsche Rettungsflugwacht e.V./German Air Rescue) has been saving lives on its air rescue missions, both with helicopters and ambulance aircraft for over 30 years. On November 17th, the non-profit air rescue organization flew its 325,000th mission.

The emergency dispatching center in Suhl alerted the DRF rescue helicopter for an emergency in the region of Sonneberg. A woman had fallen down the stairs sustaining serious head injuries. ”Christoph 60“ started at 7:22 a.m. and landed shortly after at the scene of the accident some 45 km away. After providing for the patient’s needs, the crew flew the patient to Meiningen. At Meiningen hospital, the DRF emergency physician and the paramedic handed the patient over to neurosurgeons.
