American Medflight has confirmed the loss of three crewmembers
and a patient in an air medical aircraft accident this evening. We
are devastated by this event and wish we had answers to the many questions
being asked at this time. We are cooperating fully with the National
Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) and the Federal Aviation Administration
(FAA) as they investigate the accident.
As an air medical family, we are mourning the loss of our
crewmembers and patient. Their families
have been notified and they are in our thoughts and prayers. Our priority at this time is to look after
the well being of the affected family members and their co-workers and to be
responsive to their needs. We ask the
media and interested parties to be patient with the investigation process and
honor the privacy of the family and friends of those who have lost their lives.
