Toy Helicopter Confused for Life-Sized Version, Rescue Mission Mounted

Police patrols, three Charleston Fire Department trucks, and a battalion chief rushed to the Wando River where a helicopter had plunged into the water. A two-foot toy helicopter. That's what? Over ten times smaller than the real thing? Confusion understandable.

With all the panic during rush-hour, only one man actually immediately realized that the 'copter was a wee bit too small. I hope they give that particular officer an award of some kind. Or better yet, a promotion to a department that wouldn't give me a ticket for racing an RC car. [Post and Courier via Obscure Store]
