Every day someone, somewhere, needs to be flown to a hospital for immediate medical care.
In some emergencies, Life Flight is called to find, treat and transport the patient to the closest - and most capable - hospital.
Life Flight crews are a unique breed. They take the training and stress that comes with working in a hospital or ambulance, stuff it into a cramped aircraft, and use it to save lives while thousands of feet above the ground.
"This is an environment that is a lot harder; it's not easy to control," said Sarah Barber, a Life Flight medic.
At this elevation, teamwork is essential to getting the job done.
