Former WFAA Intern One of Five Killed in NYC Helicopter Crash

By Stephanie Tsoflias Siegel 

One of the five people killed in Sunday night’s deadly helicopter crash into New York City’s East River is Trevor Cadigan, son of Jerry Cadigan, the longtime production manager at Dallas ABC affiliate WFAA.

According to the station, Cadigan recently moved to New York to take a job with Business Insider. His high school friend and Dallas firefighter Brian McDaniel was also on board the doomed tourist helicopter.

Cadigan, who had once interned at WFAA, posted a video to his Instagram story just after the tourist chopper took off from New Jersey.


The pilot was the only survivor.

WFAA has started a GoFundMe account in Cadigan’s name.
