Tranquility Disturbed - II, by CindyD

On March 21st of this year, the local rescue helicopter in our area tragically crashed into Honey Lake, killing the pilot and critically injuring the two flight nurses. The crew normally devoted to saving lives, was on the opposite end of this incident. This was the only medical rescue helicopter serving our area, and the community depended on it as our literal lifeline to major medical centers. The crash had occurred a few miles into the lake from where we were walking, and had happened over two weeks ago. This car-hood-sized piece of the doomed chopper must have been brought to the shores by the prevailing wind swept waves. It protruded eerily from the normally pristine lakeshore.
