DANVILLE — A medical helicopter ran into a problem Thursday. According to Geisinger Health System’s Public Relations Specialist, Mike Ferlazzo, a LifeFlight helicopter clipped a flag on top of a construction crane during its flight back to Danville today. The crane was being used for construction on the campus of Geisinger Medical Center.

The incident happened around 12:20p.m Thursday. The pilot landed safely on the helipad at GMC and the patient on board was transported into the hospital as planned. No injuries were reported due to the flag clipping. There was minimal damage to the helicopter. Geisinger is conducting an internal investigation.

during a medical emergency you are not required to take a life flight, with your life on the line you can drive to danville if you prefer, your about to die and your worried about a helecopter ride? get real

I would think if you are having a medical emergency, I doubt you're worried about clipping a flag. The pilot landed safely and the patient was taken inside the hospital. It's time to move on.
