US Coast guardA Bell 206-L4 helicopter crashed in the Gulf of Mexico at South Timbalier Block 317, some 90 miles from Houma, on the afternoon of June 11.

The accident happened when the helicopter was on its way to an oil rig platform, with two people on-board.

The helicopter, owned by Westwind Helicopters, was contracted by an oil and gas company, Wood Group, at the time of accident. A spokesperson of the company, Bobbie, confirmed the incident and said “Our thoughts and prayers are with them, their families and friends during this difficult time.”

Westwind Helicopters and NTSB are working to determine the cause of crash.
