As we learn more about how a medical helicopter crashed in Georgetown Friday night, we're also learning more about the victims.
The pilot, 45-year-old Patrick Walters, was from Murrells Inlet but a native of Louisiana. He leaves behind a wife and two daughters. He had worked for OmniFlight for four years and 10 days.
The in-flight nurse was 42-year-old Diana Conner of Florence. She, too, leaves behind two children and a husband. Her family says Diana did not want funeral services, so there will be none. Diana's father described her to NewsChannel 15 as a private person but a go-getter. Her friends at the Williamsburg County EMS say she was a very dedicated nurse to whatever mission she was called to. The in-flight paramedic, 39-year-old Randolph Claxton Dove from Bladensboro, North Carolina, was married with two little girls. Dove has held numerous jobs in the emergency services sector, and a former co-worker said he had obtained the highest level of training in critical care response. A family friend of Dove's says Bladen-Gaskins Funeral Home in Elizabethtown, N.C., will handle funeral arrangements, but no services have yet been scheduled.
