Memorial planned for 3 killed in emergency helicopter flight

February 6, 2019

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — A memorial is planned for three people killed when a helicopter on its way to transport a patient to a medical facility crashed in Ohio.

The pilot and two flight nurses were killed Jan. 29 when the Survival flight helicopter crashed in state forestland in southern Ohio.

The Columbus Dispatch reports a public memorial service is scheduled for Wednesday morning at Grove City Church of the Nazarene in suburban Columbus.

The crash killed pilot Jennifer Topper and nurses Bradley Haynes and Rachel Cunningham.

The paper has previously reported that two other air-medical companies opted not to accept the assignment over concerns about the weather that day.
