A Tragedy Near Andrews AFB

A Maryland State Police MEDEVAC helicopter crashed near Andrews AFB early this morning in bad weather after retrieving victims from a traffic accident. Four of the five passengers on board were killed.

Working in traffic, I hear callouts for MEDEVAC response all the time, so this affects me. I'm actually surprised that the copter was allowed to be airborne, given the bad weather.

May God rest the souls of those who perished, and give comfort to their families.

This possibility is ever before me when I am working. St Michael, patron of paramedics and EMS, protect us as we do our jobs.
