These names had been withheld until next of kin were notified as indicated in the previous article concerning this PHI helicopter crash

This is the second tragic accident for PHI within the past year. It comes on the heels of another deadly crash involving a Rotorcraft helicopter headed to an oil platform last month.  The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) crash investigators have started investigating the crash site, taking statements and begin debris inspection and collection.

PHI is a primary provider of helicopter services to oil and gas platforms that dot the coast of Louisiana.  In June, a PHI Air Medical helicopter crashed in East Texas, killing four. The medivac helicopter crash in the Sam Houston National Forest killed the pilot, paramedic, nurse and a patient who was being transported from Huntsville to Houston. That crew agreed to transport the patient after another helicopter company abandoned the mission saying that cloud cover was too low, making visibility poor in the early-morning darkness.
