An emergency doctor is together with a patient being hosted up by a paramedic to a rescue helicopter in the Swiss Alps. Air Zermatt is one of the busiest and most professional helicopter mountain rescue services in the world. Yearly the brave men perform around 1600 rescue missions, most of them in high mountain terrain. In winter injured skiers are saved, in summer lost hikers are searched or stuck climbers evacuated.
