LifeNet in town reacting to chopper crash

Posted: Updated:

The helicopter, which is owned by LifeNet, was carrying three crew members.

LifeNet is one of several companies in Arizona that handles emergency calls. It is still uncertain where the helicopter involved in Wednesday's crash was headed and where it came from.

There are unconfirmed reports it left Marana headed for Douglas, possibly to respond to a call.

Either way, we're told the crew on board had a lot of obstacles in their way in trying to land.

"When you're in a helicopter and it's gonna go down you wanna try to make it land in an area where there's no homes... people."

And that's exactly what they managed to do. LifeNet's spokesperson said everyone in the company, especially employees in Tucson, is having an extremely difficult time right now. They're trying to support each other.
