Well said! Our thoughts and prayers are with Kevin, you and everyone else affected by this accident.

+2. My thoughts and prayers to everyone involved, and to their immediate families and friends. Godspeed.

Travis - I agree that you made the right decision to get help; a tough one to make indeed.

wow. Really sorry to hear this news. I'm praying for both of you. [-o< You made the right decision. Really no other choice to make. I hope and pray that the SAR reaches him quickly and can bring him out safely. Glad to hear the SAR members are o.k. too.

KOAA picked up the story. According to them it was a chinook helicopter that had to make a hard landing.

We should try to remain positive. Is there anything that we can do as a community to improve the situation? Does SAR need anything from us? If anything - this is just another reminder for me to buy a SAR card.
