Helicopter Crashes in Southwest Palm Bay and Kills Three Palm Bay, FL - On September 6th, crews from Engine-6 and Engine-2 responded to a report of a helicopter crash in the Southwest section of the city. As units responded, a large column filled the sky in the vicinity of the reported crash. The responding District JUMP TO FILE# Chief requested a 090716112 tender and brush unit due to the column. Engine-6 arrived minutes later to find a helicopter heavily damaged and fully involved in fire. Crews initiated an attack on the main fire and began surveying the scene for hazards and victims. Engine-2 arrived shortly after and assisted Engine-6 with extinguishment and checking for victims. It was determined that the helicopter had three personnel on-board and after extinguishment, both Engine crews found all three deceased bodies. A perimeter was set up by the Palm Bay PD while awaiting the arrival of FAA and NTSB investigators. The helicopter was a 1974 Sikorsky S-61N. No civilians were in the vicinity at the time of the crash and the investigation is still ongoing. - ANTHONY GIANANTONIO
