NTSB investigating helicopter crash that left two television station employees dead
The National Transportation Safety Board is investigating the helicopter crash that killed two employees of a Charlotte television news station.
Investigators cleared the wreckage of the helicopter from the site along Interstate 77 and moved it to an offsite facility. The crash occurred about 24 hours earlier.
WBTV employees meteorologist Jason Myers and pilot Chip Tayag were killed in the crash.
NTSB officials say the Charlotte tower received no distress calls from the pilot before the crash. They expect to release a preliminary report in two to three weeks but it could take a year or two to issue the final report.
