A local resident, Bobby Childs, told local WOWK-TV that she rushed to the spot when she saw the flames and smoke. “I saw someone trapped, I guess it was the pilot (…) I tried to get there, but the fire was very strong. “I was not able to approach him,” he said.

Bell UH-1Bs began manufacturing in the 1950s and were widely used by the US military in the Vietnam War.
