Firemen rescue child’s helicopter from tree
Firefighters with the Denver Fire Department found themselves solving a much cooler catastrophe this week.
Eight-year-old Victor Conti was visiting his aunt Teri Nixon in Denver on Monday, June 25, when he flew his new remote-controlled helicopter into a tree.
After failing to get it down on their own they called the firefighters, who brought a ladder truck to help get the toy down. Chief Jay Flynn said the department was able to use the rescue as a miniature training opportunity.
“We got something out of it, and, of course, we were able to make that young man happy,” Flynn said. “It was definitely an uplifting moment. In our line of work we’re always dealing with people’s worst day, so it was a nice change of pace.”
