The National Transportation Safety Board confirmed they were investigating a fatal helicopter crash that took place near Uvalde, Texas, at about midnight.
The accident involved a Bell 206B helicopter. William Byler confirmed to Eyewitness News that his grandson Will Byler, his new wife Bailee Ackerman and the aircraft’s pilot, Gerald Green Lawrence all died in the crash at their family ranch.
