By now, most of you have heard about the tragic tour helicopter crash that happened in early May. What we are learning now is that this is not the first time that this helicopter tour company has had one of their helicopters crash.
In this case, three people were killed when the helicopter crashes onto Oneawa Street in Kailua. The cause of death for all three victims was listed as “multiple blunt force injuries due to helicopter crash.”
The NTSB is investigating the incident, though it will likely be some time before a final report is released.
The same model of helicopter, owned by the same company, crashed in October of 2018 in the waters off of Honolulu. In that case, nobody died.
This does raise questions about the safety measures put into place by the tour company and the families of those killed will likely be searching for answers.
