Three of Four Victims Named in Fatal Airplane Crash
Yesterday, REACH Air Medical Services and Cal-Ore Life Flight named their three employees who died in a tragic plane crash early Friday morning. The medical flight carrying a patient from Crescent City to Oakland crashed after the pilot reported seeing smoke in the cockpit of the twin-engine plane. He declared an emergency and attempted to return to Crescent City but instead crashed near Crannell.
REACH has declined to name the patient for privacy issues but states that the pilot was Larry Mills, the Flight Nurse was Deborah Kroon, and Flight Paramedic was Michelle Tarwater. We do know the patient was a woman from the Klamath area.
