Of the four people in the firefighting helicopter that crashed in Leesburg yesterday, one person has been confirmed dead. The other three have yet to be found, according to authorities.
Officials from the Federal Aviation Administration reported that the group had been attempting to complete a training activity when the aircraft went down in the Florida marsh at about 4 p.m.
The incident erupted into a fire, which has since been contained, officials say.
“The crash appears to be a total loss,” officials from the Leesburg Fire Department said late last night.
