Greifswald (dpa / mv) - Pilots of the rescue helicopter stationed in Greifswald have been blinded again. It was an intense light source - probably a laser pointer - the police said on Wednesday. The incident happened at the end of last week when the machine started from the station at the University Medicine Greifswald.
At the end of October, the pilot of a rescue helicopter was blinded by strangers while landing in Vitte on the island of Hiddensee. According to the information at the time, a powerful flashlight was used. The pilot reacted with a maneuver and then pointed out the danger that the crew could be temporarily unable to carry out rescue flights as a result of such actions.
