A five-year-old Swedish boy was sent to the Beijing 999 emergency rescue center on Jan. 3 by a helicopter dispatched by the Beijing Capital Airlines Helicopter Company, after he was injured while skiing at a resort in Chongli county in the neighboring city of Zhangjiakou.

The boy was then immediately transferred to the Beijing Children’s Hospital for medical care.

This was the first helicopter emergency rescue conducted by the Beijing Capital Airlines Helicopter Company since its establishment.

The Beijing 999 emergency rescue center and Beijing Capital Airlines Helicopter Company signed an agreement in October 2011 to carry out long-term cooperation in medical emergency transportation.

Residents in Beijing and neighboring cities can dial the emergency hotline 999 if they need the helicopter emergency rescue service.
