Doug, Kent, and the paramedics from the rig load Ben's bed into the news chopper. Doug tells Kent there isn't room enough for the cameraman, so Kent tells the cameraman to give Kent the camera and he'll film it himself. He tells the crew to get a van and meet him at County. The doors close, and the helicopter takes off.
Inside, Kent films Doug as he works on Ben. He's on a live feed to his station (presumably a fine NBC affiliate) and narrates, "We're live from Chopper Five with Dr....what's your name, doctor?" Doug tells him, and Kent resumes, "Dr. Doug Ross from County General. Just minutes ago, Dr. Ross rescued a boy from a storm drain. I can see you're attaching some electrodes to the boy's chest. What are those for, doctor?" Doug ignores the question and orders, "Patch me through to County." Kent repeats -- for the radio audience, I guess -- what Doug asked.
Back at County, the TV hanging from the ceiling in front of the desk is broadcasting Doug live, but no one among the hospital personnel is watching because they're gathered around the computer while Mark continues to play Doom. The radio beeps, and Carol trots over to take the call. The caller -- it sounds like Jimmy -- tells her it's Chopper Five from Channel Five News, and that they're bringing in a Dr. Ross with a hypothermic kid. Carol regards the radio quizzically, then repeats the information to Mark. As Mark is strolling over to the radio, curiously asking what Doug could be doing on a news chopper, Jerry glances up and points at Doug on the TV. Everyone turns to look. Malik yells for someone to turn up the TV. Mark asks the radio, "Doug, do you read me?" On the TV, Doug asks, "Mark, is that you?" Mark asks Doug, "What are you doing?" Doug explains that he's got a twelve-year-old kid with hypothermia, that he needs to warm him up fast, and that he's doing the best he can. He calls to Jimmy to ask their ETA and is told that it's about three minutes. Carol and Mark give each other "we're through the looking glass, here, people" looks as they talk to their colleague live on TV. Kent adds some stupid tag about Doug's struggle to save the life of a blah blah blah. Everyone gapes at the TV in total shock. While they watch, Ben appears to crash. Carol stares, frozen. Mark starts calling out orders for blankets, heated saline, yada. Mark snaps everyone out of their daze; they all head out to assemble supplies while Mark continues watching the screen. Kent is asking, "Is there anything you can do to warm him up now?" Doug ignores him. We cut back into the helicopter; Ben's heart monitor starts beeping. Kent asks why it's doing that, and Doug explains that Ben's having a run of abnormal heartbeats, but that Doug's trying to stabilize him. Ben goes into v-fib. Doug goes to shock Ben, but nothing happens. "They didn't charge the batteries?!" Doug screams. Zoom in on Mark, who breathes, "Oh my God." Doug tells Kent that he needs Kent's help, and that Kent must turn off the camera. A good, merciless journalist, Kent doesn't move the camera off Doug until Doug slams his hand in the lens and screams at him again to turn it off. The feed goes to static, and the station cuts to an anchorman in the studio, who says they've momentarily lost contact with Chopper Five, and calls the story "Rescue in Action" because, as we've all seen in the past few days, it isn't real news unless it's branded with some catchy tag line. Mark rubs his upper lip and looks concerned.
