Swiss army helicopters crossed the border into France to scoop water from a lake to help thirsty cattle. The operation took people swimming and fishing in the lake completely by surprise. Even the authorities at the lake admitted they were shocked because no one had told them the Swiss were coming. The deputy mayor of the community, Christophe Mathez, said he had no idea the operation would occur and that no one had requested authorization before descending. Swiss authorities said they did ask the French Air Force for permission, but not local authorities. The Swiss stopped immediately when they realized there was a communication problem. Mathez said they were not mad at their neighbors, but they would need some clarification before the operation continued. —Jim L. Wilson and by Jim Sandell
