Albuquerque, NM – On July 16 at approximately 7:20 pm, the Bernalillo County Sheriff's Office helicopter Metro 2 crashed just outside of Las Vegas, NM. The helicopter and its crew were assisting with a wildfire in the area, providing bucket drops and other air logistics needs to fire crews on the ground. There were no survivors. We are heartbroken and seek to raise funds to be distributed between the families equally.
