Glasgow Helicopter Aftermath

There have been reports, many reports, of the uninjured and walking wounded survivors of the Glasgow helicopter crash re-entering the pub to bring the injured out before the emergency services arrived on the scene. This was a stupidly dangerous thing for them to do and could have easily cost them their lives if an aviation-grade fuel fire had broken out. It was also an insanely brave act that probably saved numerous lives and allowed the first responders to triage the injured far faster than would otherwise have been possible.

These are the people I wish we were more often.
