Fundraiser set for families of air ambulance crash victims
MANDAN, N.D. (AP) — A memorial fundraiser is set this weekend to help out the families of three people who died in an air ambulance crash in western North Dakota late last year.
Nurse Bonnie Cook, paramedic Chris Iverson and pilot Todd Lasky died in the Nov. 18 Bismarck Air Medical crash in Morton County. Authorities believe the Cessna 441 turboprop broke up in midair. The investigation into the cause is ongoing.
The Bismarck Tribune reports that a three-on-three hockey tournament and a silent auction with a freewill lunch are scheduled Sunday at the Starion Sports Complex in Mandan.
