Ironically, while attempting to save a struggling swimmer off Rio de Janeiro’s famous Copacabana beach in Brazil, a fire department helicopter crashed into the briny deep. Thankfully, all four crew members walked away from the event, and the swimmer was rescued by a surfer. 

Which prompts the question, why send a chopper out for a surfers job? The video is featured by DailyPicks and is further covered on FoxNews
