GRAND ISLE - A spokesperson from PHI of Lafayette identified the pilot who died when his helicopter crashed into the Gulf of Mexico.

"We will continue to work closely with the NTSB to understand the cause of the accident," Deutser said.

Deutser said a rescue team recovered both the body and the aircraft from the crash scene.
