The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) has provided details on the tragic helicopter cr@sh that claimed the lives of the Group Chief Executive Officer of Access Holdings Plc, Herbert Wigwe, his wife, son, and other crew members onboard.

The details were provided by a board member with the NTSB, Michael Graham, alongside the investigator in charge of the incident, Aaron Sours, at a press briefing on Saturday evening, February 10, in Barstow, California, USA.

The NTSB is an agency charged by the US Congress to investigate every civil aviation accident and significant accidents in the other modes of transportation across the United States of America.

Graham confirmed that the two crew members and four passengers on board the aircraft were fatally inj¥red and that there was a report of a fire outbreak when the helicopter cr@shed.

“As far as we know, from what was reported from witnesses that there was fire when the aircraft did contact the terrain

We have a representative from the NTSB’s Transportation Disaster Assistance division at the scene and she is currently working with the family members of those who lost their lives.

We currently have a meteorologist working on our team and we were working to analyse and get the exact weather conditions at that time. Of course, that’s out in the middle of the desert so we’ll have to find the closest reporting stations nearby to be able to give an accurate report

Our team methodically and systematically reviews all evidence and considers all potential factors to determine the probable cause,” he said.
