Correction: Arizona Plane Crash Victim-Funeral story
Apr. 17, 2018
LAS VEGAS (AP) — In an April 15, 2018 story about a gathering of friends and family in Las Vegas for one of six people killed in the crash of a small plane in Arizona, The Associated Press erroneously described the gathering as a funeral. It was a vigil and a friend of the victim, Jennifer Hurtado, said no date has yet been set for the funeral.
A corrected version of the story is below:
Vigil held in Las Vegas for 1 of 6 victims of Arizona plane crash
A vigil has been held in North Las Vegas for one of the six people killed in the fiery crash of a small plane in Scottsdale, Arizona.
LAS VEGAS (AP) — A vigil has been held in North Las Vegas for one of the six people killed in the fiery crash of a small plane in Scottsdale, Arizona.
Friends and family of 22-year-old Helena Lagos describe her as having a lively personality and being an entrepreneur who was going to do big things.
The vigil for Lagos was held Friday at a park. No date has been set yet for her funeral.
Lagos was one of three Las Vegas residents who died in Monday night's crash on a golf course shortly after takeoff from Scottsdale Airport.
Authorities say the plane was headed to Las Vegas.
National Transportation Safety Board investigators are trying to determine if the Piper PA-24 Comanche was overloaded and not equipped to carry six people.
Lagos reportedly was dating the owner of the plane, who also died in the crash.
