New video shows helicopter falling apart moments before deadly crash on I-10
BATON ROUGE - New video posted on social media shows the moment a helicopter fell from the sky and crashed onto I-10 Tuesday, killing a Baton Rouge pilot. The video will likely be used in the federal investigation into what happened.
The pilot killed in the crash, Joshua Hawley, was a former first responder from the Baton Rouge area. On Tuesday, the mayor-president's office confirmed Joshua Hawley previously spent four years with the East Baton Rouge EMS.
More recently, Hawley flew helicopters for a Baton Rouge-based industrial construction company.
Officials plan to close the bridge Sunday so crews can repair the power lines destroyed during the crash.
Hawley's family has set up a GoFundMe page to help fund funeral costs. In just seven hours, more than $24,000 has been raised.
