Everyone is talking about a helicopter rescue that went completely awry IRL and then viral online.
A 74-year-old woman was injured hiking Arizona's Piestewa Peak and had to be air-lifted on a stretcher to safety. Unfortunately her stretcher spun out of control mid-air and seemed more harrowing of an experience than her actual injuries.
The events inspired the hashtag meme "helicopter grandma," and people have a lot to say about it.
