Where to Land

Would you want a helicopter landing right next to your child's day care?

Some parents who take their kids to the Childcare Center in Marshfield say they don't because it could be dangerous. Parents worry that the chopper will send debris flying through the air and could hurt one of the kids outside playing.

Also, some parents are afraid that the helicopter will scare the kids.

Hospital officials say they are researching all the possible sites for the new landing pad, and are taking safety very seriously.

The hospital has to move the current helipad because a new clinical building is being built across the street from it, and the new building will make taking off difficult and dangerous.

The decision on where to move the helipad will be made in the next six weeks.
