After hurricanes Maria and Irma in 2017, “…”she immediately began flying support missions…” Link about crash: https://t.co/knrAMQOojI Link about Maria: https://www.ainonline.com/…/maria-rodriguez-receive..
We used to use helicopters every time we were traveling and they were offering those services. Until 3 years ago, that my nephew that was the sales manager for one of those companies, died when the helicopter crashed near Punta Cana, Dominican Republic. Both, my nephew and the Pilot disappear in the waters of the Caribbean Ocean. Only small pieces of the helicopter were discovered/recovered. I understand how these families must be feeling. RIP.
Kenny please don’t ever get on a piston helicopter, EVER! So sad.
I have mixed emotions..these past few weeks we have experienced very strong winds. Why did they were not prohibited to do the flight? That’s, St Thomas! PR has been announcing ..not to visit beaches. and high average of winds affecting small engine flights…RIP

Their team got some of the first footage of the islands post-Irma and Maria to help the world understand the devastation.
So sorry to hear this. May She Rest in Peace and Thank you to her family for her selfless work…
This is the saddest news , Maria! Such a great loss. My condolences to Charlotte and Madison.
Any knowledgeable pilots here? Is that a Robinson 44? Because if it is its the third one Ive heard off failing recently
May be an image of candle, fire and text that says ‘Rest In Peace MY CONDOLENCES’
I’m a cabin crew, and you couldn’t pay me to get into a helicopter. My condolences to their families.

The Bermuda Triangle has always been a problem. It’s been said for years all Caribbean people know it! May she Rest In Peace. I’m sorry I’m not joking either.
