Neighbor Calls-Out Biggest Prick In Portugal

 

Lawsuit filed,
Suing FD pilot…
…that took pool water…
…during wild FIRE…
while busy saving the prick owner’s home.

 

 

 

The following GIFs come from 3 videos.
They show a quick thinking FD helicopter pilot taking water from a pool to fight a fire…that is just about to burn down the house.
Pilot Mario Miner explains why the neighbor is suing the city for damages.

“I’m not the owner of the swimming pool, I just live next door :). The pilot told me that the owner is entitled to compensation for damages or lost water if he files a complaint with the Civil Defense, which my neighbor didn’t, AFAIK. He explained that filling at swimming pools is only done as a last resort (but not illegal in Portugal) because of the risks involved (children playing, damage to property, flying debris such as garden furniture, etc), but he did so on this case because there were houses in danger and the water source was so convenient.”

 

 

João Guimarães later meets the FD (AS350) helicopter pilot Mario Miner and explains his side of the story:
“He also detailed the operation a little bit more: he was returning to the airfield from another bushfire when he saw the initial smoke column. He took the initiative to land and start the attack on his own since the fire was so close to houses. He made about 25 refills at the swimming pool, and this bucket carries about 600 liters, if I remember correctly. The swimming pool level lowered not even 40 cm after the mission. The helicopter left when the first firetruck arrived, the fire having already been extinguished.”

“I became friends with the pilot flying on the video, he has a very nice onboard video”

All 3 full videos below. The second one is a little long but pretty cool…and “f*ck this law suit neighbor”. Thank you João Guimarães for sharing the story and pilot Mario Miner for Serving the community.
