Posted on Categories Uncategorized

The last of the nine fatalities in the helicopter crash in northern California has been identified. At a meeting with reporters as one of the injured firefighters, Richard Schroeder, was being released from the hospital, Grayback Forestry owner Mike Wheelock said Stephen Renno, 21, of Cave Junction, Oregon died in the crash. His name had been withheld because his family could not be located immediately. Grayback officials found them on a camping vacation in Oregon.

Schroeder had difficulty speaking due to cuts to his lips which required stitches. He also has a broken shoulder and fractured vetebra.

The National Transportation Safety Board will begin examining the cockpit voice recorder today. More information about the crash, including photos of Schroeder, are available HERE.
