PGHM Helicopter Rescue on the Grandes Jorasses

A team of French climbers were hit by a rock on the Desmaison Gousseault and were evacuated by helicopter.  This really shows how serious the work can be and the talent involved: from flying the heli to getting the climbers off the mountain.  Huge respect to all those who work at the PGHM.

Buy them beer if they ever take you off the mountain!

    that looks pretty scary stuff!
    well done those heli pilots are legends. I watched the local squad pluck a hiker of Lions head once, incredible stuff!
