Crippled Chopper Removed

(CINCINNATI) -- On Friday, a crane lifted a crippled helicopter from the landing pad atop University Hospital after an aborted take-off damaged the aircraft on New Year's Day.

The aircraft was lifted by a crane then laid on the ground.

To set up for the removal of the aircraft, from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m. Friday, Goodman Street will be closed to all traffic and Highland Avenue will be restricted to inbound and outbound ambulatory traffic only.

Goodman Garage will remain open to patient and employee traffic. Clinics, outpatient services and offices located in the Hoxworth building will also remain open during the removal. The University Hospital emergency department will remain open and services will not be affected with the exception of the estimated 15 minutes it will take to actually remove the helicopter from the landing pad.

During this short timeframe, should there be emergency patients, they will be diverted to nearby area hospitals. Police officers from the University of Cincinnati will be stationed around the hospital premises throughout the day to assist with traffic direction.

Report: University Hospital
