Occasionally you go from photographing nature, to doing documentary.
This is a picture of one of the the emergency responders from Scandinavian Air Ambulance responding to a major fire in an apartment block right next to where I live.
It had landed in a grass field some distance from where fire was, so I decided to go down there to get a few shots of the helicopter since there was nobody around down there.
Heres what happened (according to what I heard): A fire started somehow on the top floor and/or attic.
A group of pre-school teachers alerted the residents by running into their apartment building banging on each and every door once they saw smoke pouring out of one of the top floor windows. Probably saving the lives of the people living there.
Things could have gone a lot worse if the preschool teachers hadn't stepped in, alerting the residents and the emergency services.
Although I followed the events mainly from my working room window, I think that quite a lot of people owe a big gratitude to emergency responders today: @polisen @brandkaren_attunda @storstockholms_brandforsvar @samaritenambulans just to name a few, for responding and being on the scene comforting people, helping those injured and, of course, putting out the fire.
