the chopper pilot should know about these things and warn when its safe. To misquote McCoy, "dammit Jim, I'm a doctor, not an engineer"
also sad that the dog was a factor in causing the initial ankle leg injury. My leashed dog has a habit of circling my legs with the leash, and my friend's dog sneaks up and leans behinds the knees making it easy to trip and fall backwards. My friend also broke her ankle with a similar story.
