National Guard says three soldiers died in local helicopter crash

Three people were killed when a New York Army National Guard UH-60 medical evacuation helicopter based at the Army Aviation Support Facility at Rochester International Airport crashed in Mendon N.Y. on Jan. 20 2021

The remains of three National Guard members killed in a helicopter training accident were recovered and were being transported from the western NY crash site Thursday, escorted by police and fire vehicles.

The unit, with about 80 members, is a medical evacuation unit whose mission is to pick up casualties on the battlefield and transport them to military medical facilities, Durr said.

"I am devastated by the news tonight of a New York Army National Guard helicopter crash in the Town of Mendon that killed three of New York's bravest during a training mission". The UH-60, which has been used by the USA military for over 40 years, plays numerous roles, including air-assault and medical evacuation missions.

Sheriff Todd Baxter says that his office got multiple 911 calls about an aircraft in distress.
