Pilot Landed Medical Helicopter in Grassy Field in Chicago to Prevent Numerous Deaths

A medical helicopter crashed on the South Side of Chicago on Sunday. The pilot made a correct decision and landed in a grassy area instead of a highway nearby.

According to the Federal Aviation Administration, the pilot operated in the compliance with the instructions. He issued a “mayday” and was in time to find a grassy landing area. There were a highway and a railway on his way. Landing on that points could cause a lot of deaths.

The Federal Aviation Administration should find out the reason of the accident, the investigation will take up to one month.
