  • Initial ATSB report recommends size, weight calculations for winching

    An initial report by the ATSB into the incident on August 31 in which a person being rescued by helicopter winch slipped from a harness and died, has recommended helicopter emergency operators carrying out winching operations consider the size, weight and medical condition of the patient to help indicate whether other recovery options offer reduced risk.
