Watch the NYPD Pull Off a Tricky Helicopter Rescue of a Hiker

It was like straight out of a movie,” Amanda Graham told the Daily News. “As I was slipping I thought I was going to go all the way down, but I grabbed a rock. I was able to stabilize my fall and I didn’t fall too far down.” The Hudson River loomed 200 feet below.
