Incredible liftoff at CRHS of Coast Guard helicopter during Hurricane Florence

Watch this incredible video taken by Columbus Regional Healthcare Vice President for Business Development and Community Relations Terrie Priest of a Coast Guard helicopter's aborted liftoff, then subsequent takeoff from the CRHS helipad Saturday evening. The crew took two critical patients who could not be transported by ground to New Hanover Regional. The crew and a CRHS RN took off during the height of the storm. It made one attempt, then landed for about 10 minutes before successfully lifting off.
