WDBJ7 crews went to New River Valley Medical Center's Life-Guard 11 Hanger in Christiansburg to learn how workers train. Life-Guard 11 is an aircraft that weighs about 7,000 pounds. Inside, there's room for the pilot, the nurse, a medic and the patient. Not only must crews work under tight conditions in extremely chaotic situations, but they must do so strapped inside with gear on. When responding to a call, the crew must be on scene and out in ten minutes. The flight nurse Stacey Shellhammer says the toughest part about her job is dealing with a patient that's a child.
