Canadian Aerial Water Bomber Extinguishes Dangerous Truck Fire

|

"Wow" is the first word that comes to mind after watching this video of a giant water-bombing aircraft dropping a gush of water and fire retardant on a grader and a transport truck in rural Canada.

Before you question the rationale of flying a firefighting airplane to an automotive accident scene, you may want to know that local authorities made the decision because the crash between the grader and the truck occurred in a remote location on the Trans-Labrador Highway and emergency vehicles were miles away.

A report from CBC Canada said the driver of the truck was pulled out of the vehicle safely and taken to a hospital in Happy Valley-Goose Bay for non-life threatening injuries.
