We see quite a few helicopters from where I work. It seems to be on a frequent flight path for military planes and helicopters. We’ve seen police and air ambulance helicopters before, too, including the air ambulance landing on the North Devon Link Road, and even once landing on the grass across the road from us to pick someone up from the business park itself.
This time, the helicopter came in and landed on the link road, and I got a few shots as it came in to land:
We knew something relatively big must have happened when the second air ambulance helicopter arrived a few minutes later:
We found out later that two road workers had been hit by a van, and seriously injured. One has since died. The one who lived was badly hurt, but should make a full recovery – he was a friend of one of my colleagues.
