New Info Released On Crash Victims

LAS VEGAS (AP) – The coroner says the victims in a crash of a tour helicopter in Nevada included a couple from New Delhi, India.

Clark County Coroner Michael Murphy tells The Associated Press that he cannot release the names of any victims in the Wednesday crash because bodies have not been fully identified.

Murphy says the medical examiner is obtaining information and DNA evidence from family members of victims in the Sundance Helicopters crash.

Family members have identified three of the dead as the pilot, Landon Nield, 31, of Las Vegas, and Delwin and Tamara Chapman, both 49, a couple from Utica, Kan. They were celebrating their 25th wedding anniversary.
