wtxl_helicopterThe FAA and NTSB are investigating a weekend helicopter crash near Tallahassee, FL, that killed two people and injured one.

The helicopter that crashed is the same one Tallahassee ABC affiliate WTXL uses for news gathering. The station partners with Tallahassee Helicopters for use of the Robinson R-44 helicopter. It was not being used by the station at the time of the crash.

Killed in the crash were the pilot Terry Ooten and passenger Curtis Clifford. Sheri Devore, a second passenger, was injured.

Sources tell TVSpy WTXL news director David Lee pitched in to shoot video of the scene for the station Saturday night when no one else was available.
