A 26-yr-old man who jumped from an SUV on an SUV on Interstate 95 near Walterboro later tried to leap from the helicopter taking him to a hospital Saturday evening, forcing the aircraft to land.
(The patient’s) head was bleeding when rescuers arrived. A LifeNet helicopter later started to take Alveriz to Medical University Hospital when he became combative with paramedics about five minutes into the flight.
“The guy broke loose and was fighting with the crew, which is dangerous with that small helicopter,” said Barry McRoy, director of Colleton County Fire and Rescue. “They had to wrestle with a guy in a helicopter. … It had the potential to be a bad situation.”
