A jury in Nevada has awarded $16 million to the families of four passengers who were killed in a December 2011 helicopter crash near Lake Mead. The jurors found against Sundance Helicopters Inc. in a wrongful death case filed by the families. Sadly, the people killed in the crash included a honeymooning couple from India and a couple who were celebrating their 25th wedding anniversary. The 31-year-old pilot was also killed.
Last year, the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) cited “inadequate maintenance” for the December 2011 crash of the helicopter owned by Sundance Helicopters Inc. The crash occurred during a scenic twilight tour of Hoover Dam and the Lake Mead reservoir on the Colorado River. Investigators found a crucial bolt may have been reused too many times and improperly installed, with the mistake having not been found during inspections.
