A lot of debate has been generated on social media regarding a rescue pilot charging $1200 for a rescue.
In a video published on Live Leak, a woman can be heard telling the pilot her parents live at Canyon, which means they were in danger. However the pilot demanded $1200 for the rescue.
Few people are very quick to pass judgment and say that the pilot should have rescued at no cost since the couple was in immediate danger, others say they weren’t in any danger. However, almost everyone agrees that no one should make a quick buck off someone else’s helplessness.
