There were three people aboard the helicopter at the time of the crash. Two of the victims suffered significant injuries and first responders transported them to Jackson Memorial Hospital for treatment. They were listed in serious condition.
Despite the fact that the chopper crashed in an area that was heavily populated with beachgoers and swimmers at the time, it does not appear that anyone else was hurt in the crash.
