    MedFlight Ohio, February 02, 2019 - COLUMBUS, Ohio - The following is in regard to media questions posed to MedFlight related to the medical helicopter accident on Tuesday, January 29th, 2019 in Vinton County, Ohio.

    According to Tom Allenstein, MedFlight President and CEO, "Yesterday, a tragic accident occurred involving our air medical colleagues at Survival Flight. Our hearts and prayers go out to the team members who lost their lives as well as their families and friends. As it relates to MedFlight, we received a request to transport a patient from the Holzer-Meigs Emergency Room in Pomeroy at 6:00 a.m. on Tuesday, January 29th. The assigned team's pilot, working with the Operational Control Center at Metro Aviation, Inc., our aviation operator, determined that weather conditions at the time of the request were below our program's weather minimums. Each helicopter ambulance service has their own protocols for making decisions about whether it is appropriate to fly under given conditions. The results of the NTSB investigation is pending as it relates to the cause of this accident."
