The medical team SAR (search and rescue) Lanvéoc-board a helicopter Cayman supports a patient of 86 years.

The weather can not put a device on the helipad of the University Hospital of Brest. The Caymanarises at the naval base at Brest. The doctor SAR accompanies the patient, carried by a vehicle rescue and assist victims of marine Brest-Fire, to the emergency hospital.
