Nice job in Ibiza, helicopter rescue

I was alerted to this helicopter crew getting a couple of people off of the roof of a burning building. The video shows the delicate touch needed, I think, as I suspect they didn't want to put the full weight of the helicopter on the roof ... *tips cap*

Rescuing people from the roof of a burning building in a built up area? “Ridiculous, too dangerous, shouldn’t be done.” Nothing to see here, move along.....

I'm so glad you were not the pilot responsible for either rescuing me or my wife, Mr Hompy.
