Helicopter wreckage nowhere to be found

Efforts to recover a helicopter that crashed into Roosevelt Lake Dec. 7 have ended after multiple failed dives. Gila County Sheriff’s Office dive teams scoured the bottom of the lake for more than a week, but found no sign of the 1,500-pound helicopter, which splashed into the lake during a sightseeing flight out of Mesa.

Search for wrecked helicopter ends

Efforts to recover a helicopter that crashed into Roosevelt Lake Dec. 7 have ended after multiple failed dives. Gila County Sheriff’s Office dive teams scoured the bottom of the lake for more than a week, but found no sign of the 1,500-pound copter, which splashed into the lake during a sightseeing flight out of Mesa. All on board survived with non-life threatening injuries, but the helicopter appears to have broken up, scattering wreckage through the lake.
