That woman in the helicopter rescue spinning video is fine, apparently

Video of the unreal scene, which dragged on for almost a full minute, was captured by local media outlets KNXV and FOX 10 Phoenix. The video has tens of thousands of shares.

About a minute after the spinning began, it subsided and the basket was brought alongside the crew area of the helicopter, which landed at an ambulance.

Dramatic video of the airlift shows the woman spinning at a high pace on the stretcher dangling below the helicopter.

The woman, who was rescued around 9 a.m.

Phoenix Fire Department Assistant Fire Chief Shelly Jamison said: "We do mountain rescues all of the time, but this particular one gathered quite a bit of attention because during the rescue, she was packaged on a hoist in a basket and she started to spin". The basket spun wildly for about 40 seconds, with the crew raising and lowering the 74-year-old several times while trying to slow the spinning.

Apple set to get rid of iTunes after nearly 20 years
However, Apple seems to be removing the app's social media presence through deleting all of its content on different platforms. A lot of the changes will be coming to Apple's other most successful pieces of hardware: the watch and iPad.

Forward flight usually helps to stop this from occurring during rescue, according to helicopter operator Deek Geisel. "In the past we've kind of learned some of the techniques to get rid of it". "We brought it down again, brought it back up, hoping some of the spin would lessen, which it didn't, obviously", he said. She was not experiencing any other symptoms related to the spin, firefighters said. "It doesn't happen very often, and when it does we're trained to take care of it".

Apolinar said the department has performed hoist rescues 210 times over the last six years, and they know of the spinning phenomenon happening just twice before.

"When it's down low toward the ground it's not subject as much to the rotor wash of the helicopter", Apolinar explained.

The woman was taken to the hospital with unknown injuries she suffered from her hike, and officials said she didn't have any ill effects from the rescue.

The woman is said to be in a stable condition now.
