Firefighter Brent Johnson, specially trained in helicopter rescue operations was in the Department of Public Safety helicopter hovering at the face of the mountain. Johnson would rappel from the hovering helicopter down to Ford. Another SFD paramedic was also able to make it to the patient to provide the treatment the injured man needed. It was very difficult to get the helicopter in so close to the mountain. The DPS pilot got so close that the helicopter’s rotor blades were literally 10 feet from the ravine walls.
