  • AR man among victims in medical helicopter crash

Sheriff Wright was at the scene Sunday night and spoke to the woman who called 911. "You couldn't put another one in it".

"She said it just started spinning, starting spiraling down", said Wright. "I'm sure the crash could have spooked them and made a big racket going down".

Three people died when a medical helicopter crashed in Arkansas County, Ark., the county sheriff confirmed. The aircraft crashed in the early evening of 19 November in an isolated area near De Witt, killing the Air Methods pilot, Michael Bollen, Pafford flight nurse James Lawson Spruiell and Pafford flight paramedic "Trey" John Auld III.

Spruiell and Auld worked for Pafford Air One, the release states. "We will continue to try and comfort the crew's families as well as everyone in our employ", said Dustin Ross, Director for Pafford Air One, in the release. Dewitt sits approximately 60 miles southeast of Little Rock. The panel was set to arrive at the crash site by Monday afternoon.
