What’s it Like to be a Life Lion Pilot?

Check out the video below if you want to learn more about the Life Lion Pilots at the Hershey Medical Center! They fly over town daily and it’s so cool being able to see them land from the Bull Frog trails that lead out to the front of the hospital.

I remember taking a tour of the helicopters when I was a little girl scout and they had to leave right in the middle of the tour to go help a baby that needed medical attention! We watched them in their process and saw them take off. It was truly a remarkable experience.

They contribute so much to the hospital and their work needs to be acknowledged! So please take a peek at this short video!
