Watch as a helicopter conducting firefighting operations in Portugal finishes a refill and strikes power lines on the way back to the fireground. It’s hard to see in the video, but apparently the lines dropped close to the people in the boat. The wire strike kit worked and the cables were cut, allowing the pilot to continue flying. Afterwards you can see the power lines laying across the roof of a house on the bank.
