A helicopter rescuing a 75-year-old woman on a stokes basket took a dramatic turn when it spun out of control Tuesday in the air in Arizona, US.

The dizzying rescue of the injured hiker was captured on video.

We tried to count the spins and came up with a rough estimate of 150 RPMs at the end. The hiker has been transported to a hospital for treatment of her hiking injury and suffered only nausea and dizziness from her spin.
