Chris Cline Helicopter Crash
They were aboard a U.S.-registered helicopter that went down in the Atlantic about 1 mile off Grand Cay in the Bahamas, said Delvin Major, the chief of the Bahamian Air Accident Investigation Department. Authorities said the helicopter left from Grand Cay, a small island about 110 miles northeast of Palm Beach, sometime between midnight and 2 a.m. and was bound for Fort Lauderdale.
The Grand Cay area of the Bahamas does not have an active overnight recording station, but according to satellite images, “we didn’t have any adverse weather at that time of night,” meteorologist Laverne Mather said from the Bahamas Department of Meteorology. Weather conditions over Fort Lauderdale and offshore waters were “relatively benign” at the hour the helicopter went down, said meteorologist Shawn Bhatti from the National Weather Service’s Miami office.
Family members reported concerns to the department Thursday when the helicopter did not arrive on time, Major said. Authorities took the seven bodies were taken to Nassau.
