A person is being hoisted up into a hovering helicopter against a bright blue sky with scattered clouds. The helicopter blades are a blur due to their motion, and the person is in mid-air, suspended by a cable. This daring scene could easily be part of a heroic Lakota Award of Valor rescue operation.
