David Scarborough, Tim Graham, 2 Killed in Helicopter Crash in Gulf of Mexico near Louisiana

Gulf of Mexico -- December 29, 2022, David Scarborough, Tim Graham, and two others were killed in a helicopter crash off the coast of Louisiana.

As of January 3, 2023, authorities say they have recovered the victims of the crash. Details are scarce as investigations are ongoing. Initial details said that David Scarborough, Tim Graham, and two other people were onboard a helicopter. They were flying roughly 10 miles outside of Southwest Pass returning from an offshore oil platform when the helicopter crashed into the Gulf.

Scarborough, Graham, and the other two victims died due to the crash. Reports identified Walter Oil & Gas as the owner of the platform, Rotorcraft Leasing Company as the owner of the helicopter, and Island Operating Co., as the employer of the workers killed int eh crash.

Right now, additional details are pending investigations from agencies including the National Transportation Safety Board and the Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement. The good news is those agencies have just about the best of the best in terms of accident reconstructionists. I have little doubt they'll be able to provide answers. The bad news is it's generally not anytime soon that they get those answers.

It's always so difficult seeing families left in the dark after a devastating accident. Officials, thorough as they may be, can take months or sometimes over a year to complete their reports. So who is working in the meantime to get the victims' loved ones the answers they deserve?
