Fire crews, pilots test rescue skills at High Roller — PHOTOS

Faces could be seeing gawking skyward near the Strip on Thursday morning.

A police helicopter was hovering seemingly inches away from the High Roller as pedestrians strained to get a look.

There was no problem or rescue underway.

The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department’s Air Support and Search and Rescue Section was working a training exercise with the Las Vegas Fire Department.

Review-Journal photographer Erik Verduzco captured these images.
