A helicopter crash near Pompano Beach Airpark in Florida has killed two people, including a first responder and a civilian, authorities have confirmed. The incident happened Monday morning shortly before 9 a.m. local time, according to the Broward Sheriff’s Office.

Capt. Terryson Jackson, 50, of the Broward Sheriff’s Office, was among three people aboard the fire rescue helicopter when it crashed. He died in the tragedy, authorities said. The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) also confirmed that a second person died on the ground.

Eyewitness footage revealed the helicopter caught fire in its midsection, creating a significant smoke trail before it broke in half, spiraled and fell to the ground. Contrary to the initial information that indicated that two crew members and two civilians had been transferred to the hospital in a stable condition, it has been clarified that the situation was more serious, with which two people died.

The rescue helicopter was en route to a situation in North Lauderdale at the time of the crash. Pompano Beach is approximately 40 miles north of Miami.

The NTSB is now investigating the crash to determine the cause and expand its recommendations to prevent future tragedies from occurring.
