A pilot and three firefighters shared a near-death moment last week on Tuesday after their helicopter went down in the mountains of Nevada. The incident was captured by a camper while he was filming the rescuers pick up stranded climbers on a cliff top. The pilot walked away with a head injury, while three firefighters on board were uninjured.

The Bell B206 (N3185A) was destroyed.
