Hospital officials and PHI are working on removing an EC135 that became stuck at the edge of rooftop helipad in Corryville, Ohio early on Jan. 2 after a hard landing. No one was injured in the incident, which occurred at about 0530 local after a patient had been dropped off at University Hospital. The Eurocopter aircraft became tangled in a cable safety fence, with its tail hanging over the roof’s edge 10 stories up. Hospital officials said they have been assured a crane would be able to remove the aircraft from the roof.  For related news
