João Guimarães actually published this video in 2011, but it has only exploded online now. João woke up to a Eurocopter AS350 from the Portuguese fire department taking advantage of a nearby swimming pool to help extinguish a fire on a neighbor’s property.

A crew of five firefighters gained control of the fire in 20 minutes.

“Many thanks to the unseen team on the ground, for risking their lives to save other’s property.”

Now, the viral video stands at over 350,000 views, with countless copies appearing across the web.
