FRESNO – Another close call with a drone has put yet another aircraft in danger, this time a Fresno SkyLife helicopter with a patient on board.

According to KFSN ABC30, the close encounter happened yesterday at 1,000 feet in the air, roughly two miles away from Fresno Yosemite International Airport. The pilot had to take evasive action, and the helicopter avoided colliding with the drone by a mere 20 feet.
