  • FYI--the helicopter bill is paid for by medical & vehicle insurance, NOT the taxpayer. Secondly, in the cases of severe trauma, the person is taken to a TRAUMA CENTER for definative care. Cape Canaveral is not a trauma center, so more than likely they were flown to Holmes Regional--a little more than a minute away.
