Because of bad weather

Rega with rather quiet holidays

The Swiss Air-Rescue (Rega) helicopter crews had a rather quiet holiday season: they flew around 70 missions from Christmas Eve up to and including St. Stephen’s Day. The reason for this was the relatively bad weather.

According to a Rega statement on Monday, the most common reason for the helicopter missions was serious or acute illnesses in people, such as strokes and cardiovascular diseases. But winter sports accidents also triggered Rega flights.

On Monday afternoon, above Stallikon ZH, Rega flew out a man who had fallen on a stairway on the Albis. He could not go any further due to an injury to his knee and had to be flown out with a rescue hoist.
