The accident happened on Feb. 30th, 19 hundred and 92. Four people have died and u rant about a date. Is putting notes in this comment section all u have to live for? The accident happened last night and there is a press conference this morning. Again - four people have lost their lives. The families will be notified and then the information will be released to the public. This is where u fit in - in line AFTER the the people that matter the most.

I'd like to personally thank you for you lack of reading ability, as one of my close friends was a victim of this tragedy. Perhaps next time you will actually read the news story in it's entirety and look at your calendar.

""Friday, July 24"" -- Emergency officials say it was foggy at the time of a Maryland helicopter crash that left all four onboard dead. But it's not clear if that's what caused ""last night's"" accident, there now as the PO reported it was LASTNIGHT IN AN ARTICLE DATED JULY 24, you r a friggin moron

The update states the four were returning to Frederick after a fundraising event in Hagerstown. They delayed their return for two hours due to bad weather.
Such a tragedy. My heart and prayers go out to all their families!

I watched the helicopter give rides last night while I was on a tour of the HGR control tower. I listened as the pilot called in his intentions as he took off and landed. I will never forget it.
My prayers to all family members.

My sincere sympathy to all involved directly or indirectly. I asked about the date because my wife thought she heard about this several days ago, and we were concerned that it was a second incident. My concern about good reporting stands. When death occurs, it is tragic enough, without misinformation or incomplete information. BTW - the article that my comment appears under was incomplete when I requested the information. I read the incomplete article on the 23rd not the 24th. This exhibits more irresonsibility on the part of the PO creating more misundersanding amongst readers during such a tragic event.

I posted this in the Topix "Chambersburg news" 17 hours ago. If you go to the top right,(of the thread listing), you'll find it. It's a better news source than the front page in some respects. On Your4State.com there is a very interesting piece right now. It really shows depicts the reality of crashes and seriously puts a face on these tragedies.

My sincere condolences to the families and friends related to these people killed in the prime of their lives.
