by AmericasKeepersAdmin on May 02, 2020

One officer has died. The pilot remains in critical condition at Memorial Hermann Hospital.

The crash happened just after 2 AM. According to Houston Police Chief Art Acevado, the officers were responding to a call over a report of bodies in a bayou. The chopper went down within minutes of responding to the call.

“How that pilot was able to avoid the apartment building where the residents were sleeping, there’s some silver linings tonight. It’s a miracle and we just want this miracle to continue. Had they crashed into the building itself, it would’ve been without a doubt fatal.”
– HPD Chief Art Acevado

“Please keep two of our officers in your thoughts and prayers. They have been involved in an on duty helicopter crash on the Northside of town. Currently being life flighted to the hospital, unknown condition at this time.”
– Joe Gamaldi, FOP National VP

The deceased officer is survived by his wife, two young children and his parents.

Our thoughts and prayers are with all those affected.
