But I need to show that it is dangerous with what happened to me in less than a half a second with a medium size helicopter. The photo is after skin transplant and 2 years later.

Hugo.

Did not know it already happened in 2003.

When you read it one assumes it just happened.

Anyway thanks for clearing it up but the shock still remain.

That is a problem with many websites, specially the more sensationalist types. They do not use dates, I assume to make their old news appear as fresh news, like it happened here, increasing their hit rate. This also make it very difficult to do reliable research on the web. I now regard any news article without a date with a little bit of suspension.
