A Komo4 news helicopter crashed next to Seattle’s Space needle this morning. 2 people lost their lives and another victim that was in his car at the
time is in serious condition at Harbor View hospital.
I feel compelled to post this story here because I wanted to give tribute to the 2 individuals that lost their lives in the crash, the helicopter
pilot, Gary Pfitzner and a news photographer, Bill Strothman.
Although I didn’t know Bill personally I had the opportunity to meet his son, who is also a Komo4 photographer, when he come to my residence to do a
short news story. As soon as I saw the news I could tell that Bill and his son were so much a like and he and the pilot will be greatly missed in the
To Bill, Gary and everyone else who lost there lives doing what they loved and supporting their community….R.I.P.
