A county airport weather system has been repaired after it was not working when a medical helicopter crashed in South Carolina, killing three crew members.
A medical helicopter that crashed in South Carolina last month, killing three crew members, lacked safety features recommended by experts, a federal official said Thursday.
The crash occurred more than seven months after a four-day public hearing into the safety of air ambulance flights. One day before the crash, the NTSB issued 21 recommendations to help improve safety.
Most deaths were from drowning when cars were swept off roadways. Authorities released a 15-minute 911 call of a storm victim's last moments. Seydi Burciaga, 39, screamed to a dispatcher as water rose to her neck. The dispatcher advised her to try to break a window, but she couldn't.
This truck and POD system was built by Seagrave (fire and specialty apparatus manufacturer). The special PODS are loaded and unloaded like custom container and refuse trucks.
