Drama at the Corner of PsiKeep
I had set the day aside to do some cleanup around the main house and driveway before the day got too hot to work in the sun. As I was raking pine needles to feed to the goats, I hear the helicopter come over the hill. Curious I looked up and saw the red cross on the belly of the ‘copter it passed overhead. I thought, another person had wiped themselves out on the highway and they were being transported to Davis with a very big bill to pay if they survive.
But to my surprise the helicopter banked a turn overhead and circled around. Before I knew it, it was landing on the dirt road that crosses the north-east corner of the Psikeep property.
As I wandered down the hill I could see what appeared to be a blond-haired woman stepping out of the helicopter and walking toward an ambulance parked on the road at the corner of the property. She entered the back of the ambulance.
The first strange thing I notice was that the South Lake Fire Department ambulance was facing the wrong way. There are only two houses at the end of that road. If the paramedics had come down the road on an emergency call and found that they had to order a helicopter to transport the injured person to a hospital, why were they facing in the direction as if they were first arriving at the property. There is no place to turn around.
After a few minutes the crew began transporting someone or something on a gurney to the helicopter. All I could see was that it looked like whatever was on the gurney was bagged up pretty tight.
The second thing that appeared strange in this scenario below was that no one was running. There seemed to be no urgency. Maybe I have seen too many TV dramas. But if someone was going to have to pay for that helicopter ride in order to get to the hospital I should think that the paramedics would step on it.
I also want to mention that there was a fire truck parked up the road to the right of the helicopter.
So what happened here? Was this a training session? Seems strange to do that on private land. Was there an injured person being transported by helicopter to a medical center or hospital? I called around to see if anyone knew what had happened. I even called the fire department to see if there was a medical emergency or a training session but so far no one has returned my calls.
Update October 8, 2014
According to the fire department this was a real incident and someone was air lifted to a medical facility.
