and who pays for it? Helicoptors don't run on fresh air

In some parts of the world, you have to pay yourself if you get rescued. I received a bill for four thousand Euro after being lifted off an Austrian mountain by helicopter when I injured my back. That was on top of a five hundred Euro bill for medical treatment. Fortunately my insurers paid it with no fuss.

Make sure you have good insurance!
