3 dead in Tennessee medical helicopter crash

Three crewmembers died in a helicopter crash near Somerville, Tenn., Tuesday morning en route to pick up a patient, reported.

The Hospital Wing said it lost contact with the helicopter around 6:20 a.m.  There were two LeBonheur Children's Hospital personnel on board along with a Hospital Wing pilot, the report said.

First responders are having difficulty reaching the victims because it crashed in a remote wooded area, the report said. The local sheriff's department, NTSB and the FAA have been notified and a preliminary investigation is underway.
