Medevac Helicopter Crashes

This is one of those stories that royally sucks.
Five people were killed when their medevac helicopter crashed shortly after takeoff from Battle Mountain, Nevada enroute to a Reno hospital. The dead include an 11 day old baby, the mother, pilot, paramedic, and nurse. The helicopter vanished shortly after 11:30 PM and the wreckage was found by Search and Rescue from N.A.S. Fallon about 8:30 AM yesterday.
They say the chopper flew into a mountain at full speed and exploded on impact.

What seems dumb to me is I could not find it on any local news websites. I read it on websites from Seattle, Melbourne, Australia; and Palm Springs.
My daughter saw it first on the "crawler" on the bottom of the screen on Fox News.

That is awful.
I have trouble finding stories too. Looking for a big story that hit Ma.about a Norwegian couple who had their child taken away for nothing, basically. Saw it on Fox but the story is nowhere to be found!!
I want to blog about it.

Seems like Fox has stories the other jerkoffs don't have.
