Video: Officials confirm one dead, two injured following Flight for Life crash in Frisco

Staff report

In a press conference this afternoon, the pilot of a Flight for Life helicopter was pronounced dead, and a flight paramedic and flight nurse were transported to St. Anthony Lakewood Hospital and University Hospital. Jodie Taylor, Trauma Medical Director with St. Anthony Summit Medical Center said both were transported with “significant, but I believe, survivable injuries.”

The pilot was later announced as 64-year-old Patrick Mahaney, a longtime pilot with Flight for Life and a Vietnam veteran.

“We are deeply saddened that our pilot was fatally injured, and our hearts go out to the pilot’s family,” Taylor said.
