Pilots say laser pointing is potentially deadly prank
from CTV News
It is Mike Smith's job to make sure while he's in the air every second counts. So when the ORNGE Air Ambulance pilot had a laser pointed into his cockpit twice in one week, Smith knew something had to be done. "It's a surprise. All of a sudden you're flinching, close to the ground, it's dark...that's what can cause problems," he says. Smith says a laser pointed at one of his former colleagues even caused long-term damage, forcing the pilot to wear sunglasses during the day and kept him grounded for several months.
