Five Dead, Including Child, in PA Helicopter Crash



A helicopter crash over the weekend in northeastern Pennsylvania, killed five people.
 
On Sunday Wyoming County coroner Thomas Kukuchka said the pilot contacted a nearby tower around 10:30 p.m. Saturday saying he would attempt to return to another airfield nearby. That’s when he went off the radar.
 
The names and ages of those on board have not been released, but Kukuchka said three men, a woman and a child were on board.  He says it appears to be a father and son, a father and daughter and the pilot.
 
The coroner’s office was trying to reach family members of the deceased in Leesburg, Va., Ellicot City, Md. and Kintnersville, Pa.
 
There were severe thunderstorms in the area Saturday night, although it was not clear if weather played a role in the crash.
