Heli v Hangar: You Know That's Going To Leave A Mark...

Life Rescue New Mexico's valued Eurocopter AS365 Dauphin N2 was repositioning itself over the weekend when its rotors struck the side of a hangar. The resultant forces involved destroyed the $3 million machine. Primarily used to transport urgent care patients to St. Vincent Hospital in Santa Fe, NM, company officials note that it will take several months to replace the machine, though the search for a second machine was already underway at the time of the accident.
