Okay, Holy crap, I am still shaking so bad I can hardly type.
*takes a deep breath*
So I live on a huge network of farmlands. Farm houses are connected by massive fields and tree lines. I am surrounded by empty fields right now,
nothing but dirt, my son and I often ramble around out in the wide open for fresh air and sun.
I often see military helicopters off in the distance, huge obviously military copters. This is nothing unusual. Today we were walking way out in the
middle of the field, far from my back door, when off in the distance two fields down probably I saw a small blue helicopter in the sky, what looked to
be a personal copter for maybe two people (I don't know much about helicopters other than what is military and what isn't).
I watched this helicopter for a minute, then it started to fly erratically, all over the place, dipping down sharply and going up sharply. It started
descending almost vertically and FAST, I thought to myself oh #, this copter is about to crash!
I waited to hear it, and never did. My son and I kept walking further out into the field. A few minutes later I saw it low in the sky over our field.
I pointed it out to my THREE year old son "Hey baby look at the helicopter! Can you say helicopter?" he ignored me and ran ahead, we are in a huge
wide open field, keep that in mind.
Fear started to creep into my bones. Don't over react, its just manuevering, it's fine. It squared up head on with my child and I and started to
descend. I ran ahead and grabbed my child by the shoulders, holding him still. It came STRAIGHT down, I mean sharply, I thought oh # it's going to
crash right here in front of us. It touched about fifteen feet away.
As I completely picked my child up and threw him over my shoulder I could practically see the bugs on the front of this thing. It came straight
towards us, FAST, and literally touched the dirt spraying it on us. The copter did not come down in a way of which it could have landed, it came nose
down like it would crash. I ran faster than I ever had in my entire life. I ran with him over my shoulder all the way back to our backyard, turned
around and looked. It was ascending almost vertically straight up into the sky.
I watched it circle in a way that I have never seen a helicopter move and come down in this same manner in the backyard two houses down, it came
straight up again and in a panic I dashed into the house, grabbed my phone, put my child in the front seat of the car and started driving. If this
thing came back I didnt know what else to do than get in the car and drive. I really thought it might hit my home.
I called 911 and told them. They sent a police officer who questioned me about the color and the numbers. Of course in my fight or flight dash for
the house I did not sit around and look at the numbers on a copter I was sure would kill us. The cop said he couldn't do anything about the
WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON!????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????
I am scared out of my mind. Every time I hear a plane or helicopter I break out into a cold sweat. This happened about twenty minutes ago.
PS- It was not a sprayer, I know those and it's not the time to be spraying right now.
