I was watching the news earlier when a 'late breaking story' came on. Apparently someone was airlifted from an area that is 1.5 hrs driving distance from me. I expected to see a helicopter around 7ish (I can see the only hospital helipad from my window), and the helicopter just landed now. Why in the world would they airlift someone, and take nearly 3 hours to travel when an ambulance at highway speeds could get them there faster?
I didn't find the right solution from the internet.
