The call came in to the Cumberland-based crew from more than 90 miles away: An explosion had rocked a 100-story smokestack in northern West Virginia and three workers were trapped atop the burning tower.

The team aboard the Maryland State Police helicopter was to be the rescue squad of last resort.
