Fifth Person Dies In Helicopter Crash

February 28, 2018

A British tourist who was pulled from the fiery wreckage of a helicopter crash in the Grand Canyon has died from her injuries, according to a Nevada coroner. This brings the total number of deaths from the crash up to five.  

29-year-old Ellie Milward died Sunday at University Medical Center in Las Vegas. Milward had been in critical condition since the Feb. 10 crash. Her husband Jonathan Udall died last week from his helicopter injuries. 

The newlyweds had been traveling with a group of fellow Britons visiting Las Vegas when a sightseeing helicopter they were flying in crashed just outside Grand Canyon National Park. 

Three people died the day of the crash. Two people including the pilot are still in critical condition.
