I hope that he is fine and back home soon.


A helicopter involved in firefighting efforts crashed Saturday, about 57 kilometres northeast of Slave Lake.

Slave Lake RCMP were alerted to the crash about 3:10 p.m.

The pilot, who was the Bell 412 helicopter’s lone occupant, was taken to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. His name and the company he was working for have not yet been released.

The RCMP and Transportation Safety Board are investigating the incident. The cause of the crash is unknown.

On May 20, 2011, Jean-Luc Deba, the pilot of a helicopter also involved in Alberta wildfire fighting efforts, died after his helicopter crashed into Lesser Slave Lake. He was helping battle a blaze near Slave Lake that destroyed a large part of the town.
