Chopper in the sky

Another photo taken in Camps Bay, over the weekend, by my work colleague, Jorn Das. Some great action shots of the fire-fighting helicopters at work. For those of you that might not know, this is an effective method of dousing fires in South Africa. I did see some quite astonished looking tourists taking photos of the fires and the choppers.

Apparently, these water buckets can carry 2 tonnes of water (I stand to be corrected). Thats a lot of water! And apparently, one of these bucket loads of water was dropped on top of some fire-fighting civilian on the mountain. All I can say is, “Poor little bugger!”. He is alive, but a few slipped discs in his back.
