Awaiting Sheriff Babeau's news conference...Pinal County Sheriff's Office
Helicopter Crash: At approximately 6pm last night, a Native Air medical transport helicopter with three crew (pilot and two medical staff) went missing while returning to Globe. One crew member survived the Airbus AS 350 B3 crash, located approximately 12 miles north of the town of Superior in a rugged wilderness area with limited access. There were no medical patient on board. Our Sheriff's Office Search & Rescue and Detectives have secured the crash scene awaiting the arrival later today from the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) who will conduct the crash investigation in conjunction with our Sheriff's Office. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family and friends of the crash victims.
From the report: "They rescued about 4 hours after the crash in sub-zero temperatures by a USAF helicopter ..."wallyfrack wrote:before photo: https://www.flickr.com/photos/code20photog/6190954471
