The rescue hoist

The rescue hoist is used when the helicopter is not able to land near the patient. This modern high-tech device with a cable length of up to 90 metres is deployed around 1,400 times every year. Find out in our video how the crew work hand in hand during a hoist mission.

Note: You can activate the English subtitles in the video settings by clicking on the cogwheel icon.
