Sick Man Airlifted From Snowbound Home

advertisement

Maryland State police and the Frederick County fire departments conducted an aerial rescue of a sick man from his snowbound home.

The fire department was summoned about 6:30 p.m. Thursday to a remote farm near Thurmont. Snow plows and loaders tried to get to the house, but the snow drifts were too deep.

A state police helicopter was called and paramedics were set down into a driveway next to the house and a basket was lowered. The patient was put into the basket and hoisted to the helicopter.

He was taken to a local hospital.
