911 helo crashes off Venice LA

This morning helo crashed off Venice, 1 dead, 3 survivors. My prayers go out.

Another crew from the boat I’m on heard the same from a friend of his who was over there. One fatality and two to the hospital.

Hope the ones in the hospital are doing o.k.

Never a good thing to hear. I have had some close calls in the past, especially when I was flying out several times a week. Got a flight on Monday, though. . . . Overall, I don’t think much about it, especially when statistically, I am more likely to have a serious road accident just getting to the heliport.
