Instructors say there are many things that can go wrong at high altitudes flying rescue helicopters in the backcountry of the Rocky Mountains, including litters that spin too fast when they’re being pulled up and patients who can fall out of the basket. There is also a risk for rescuers who climb up and down rocky mountainsides.

Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountain was officially reopened on Sunday, May 1, 2016. Three people were gunned down at the health center on Friday, November 27, 2015, the day after Thanksgiving. Cecile Richards, President of Planned Parenthood Federation of America, spoke to the crowd during the reopening ceremony.  (Jerilee Bennett/The Gazette via AP)
