So sad in so many ways (remembrances of JFK Jr's death).

Because the fire is still burning, I don't believe they've recovered his body yet. Awaiting service announcements.

My son is covered it through the Philly perspective (they're devastated)!!

Rex,

There was no black box on this helicopter so the local police have been asking anyone with any video footage to submit it so they can get a better idea of what exactly caused the crash.

Yes, I read that the next day in an article, citing a nameless NTSB spokesperson, while an NTSB spokesperson said that there was a black box the day before in a video presser, for she said that those choppers were equipped with such. It's early in the investigation....

NTBS's preliminary report on the crash will be issued tomorrow (10 days from the date of this video), based on the attached press conference by the NTSB, dated 1/28/20....... Interesting that the NTSB made recommendations for safety features be added to helicopters, retroactive to accidents occurred in 2004 and 2005, that were not accepted by the FAA nor adopted by the company that owned this aircraft, apparently.....
