Remains of six passengers from helicopter that crashed in Hawaii are found with seventh person presumed dead as lawmaker warns the tour aircraft are not safe
The remains of six of the seven passengers who went missing after a helicopter crashed in Hawaii have been found. The seventh body is presumed dead and authorities will return to the island Saturday to locate the final body. Poor weather and fog are preventing rescuers from going back to crash seen on Friday. 'There are no indications of survivors,' said Kauai Fire Department Battalion Chief Sol Kanoho. Hawaiian officials revealed Friday that the seven missing people in the tour helicopter that crashed were from two separate families, while the state's congressman blasted the tour industry for its poor safety record. News of the wrecked helicopter and missing people on the island of Kauai spread on Thursday after the aircraft was reportedly late arriving back at its home base. A tour helicopter carrying seven passengers was traveling through one of the most rugged and remote coastlines in Kauai when it failed to return to its home base that evening. Rescue and search teams began looking for the passengers,including two minors, but have yet to locate any survivors. Reports say the helicopter was leaving the Waimea Canyon area, known as the 'Grand Canyon of the Pacific,' before the group lost contact. Source

At least five dead and 60 injured in a horror crash involving a tour bus, trucks and several cars on the Pennsylvania Turnpike
Five people are dead and at least 60 have been injured after a horror crash on the Pennsylvania Turnpike early Sunday morning. Multiple vehicles - including a tour bus, three tractor-trailers and a car - were involved in the crash at around 3.30am on the westbound side of the turnpike near Mount Pleasant. The bus was navigating a downhill curve when it struck and embankment and flipped on its side before the other vehicles crashed into it and each other, authorities said. Harrowing photos and videos showed the mangled vehicles surrounded by debris and dozens of emergency vehicles as snow fell on the roadway. The Westmoreland County coroner confirmed the five fatalities and said at least 60 people were hospitalized with injuries. It is unclear what caused the bus to hit the embankment. Investigators with the National Transportation Safety Board were on the scene. Source
