Part 2 –Two helicopters collide then crash in Flagstaff Arizona

November 12, 2010


It’s the first of July 2008, and I am visiting my son who works at the hospital in Flagstaff. The hospital has a helicopter pad and there are a numerous life flights in and out of this hospital. I was parked nearby the hospital in my motorhome, and I could hear helicopters approaching for a landing on the helicopter pad. It was noisy and I was waiting for the noise to die down because I was expecting an emergency phone call regarding my father’s health when all of a sudden there was an explosion in silence. I knew instinctively there can only be one explanation so I grabbed my new high-definition camera and was at the crash site in less than five minutes. I had no idea what I would find or what to expect. Six people perished that day in the crash, and a nurse who had survived initially died a few days later. The second helicopter further up the hill exploded while first responders were attempting to rescue any survivors injuring three first responders.
