Elder sons of fallen photographer file 2nd suit

PHOENIX - A second lawsuit has been filed in the wake of a deadly media helicopter crash.

The two grown sons of photographer Rick Krolak filed a wrongful death lawsuit against channels 3 and 15 as well as our parent companies, and U.S. Helicopters Incorporated.

The suit alleges the companies are responsible for the actions of the pilots they employed. Krolak's minor son filed a separate lawsuit last week.

3TV photographer Jim Cox and pilot Scott Bowerbank and channel 15 pilot Craig Smith also died in the mid-air collision last year.

The NTSB still has not issued a final report on the cause of the crash.
