But meanwhile in its initial report, the Federal Aviation Administration indicated that the 3-year-old helicopter “crashed under unknown circumstances attempting to land and became inverted.” Later on, Sheriff’s Deputy and Emergency Services Manager Daniel Tague also said that, “La Pine and Crescent fire agencies sent ambulances to transport patients to Bend, a nearby city. At least one patient was transported by ambulance to a landing zone at Fort Rock, where a Life Flight helicopter reportedly landed to assist”. Ian Gregor the spokesman of Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) also stated the helicopter was an Airbus AS350. The NTSB will lead a joint investigation with the FAA.
