Amazing Helicopter Pilot Taking Water From Swimming Pool!

This is a video from Portugal where in a real emergency the firefighting helicopter pilot decided to fill up the bag (the so called “Bambi Bucket”) from a pool that’s close to the fire. According to him, they rarely fill up from pools since the rotor wash will throw around debris like lawn chairs or any other furniture and possibly even injure somebody.
But this pilot with nerves of steel gets his blades extremely close to the embankment next to the pool and finds a way to repeatedly fill up the bag and probably save the burning houses nearby.
Watch the video of this precision operation and watch out if you are going for a swim at the same time since it might be a bit windy.
