Dept / Eastcare

EastCare flew in a Bell 206L LongRanger helicopter to the Naval Hospital at Camp Lejeune on January 8, 1987 to transport Xenia Lewis, a 3-month-old, who was suffering from epileptic seizures. The helicopter crashed around 9:30 pm in the Hoffman Forest, near Pollocksville in Jones County. Pilot Perry L. Reynolds, flight nurses Mike McGinnis and Pam Demaree, and the patient all died. The crew reported a fire on board during its last Mayday. Marine search and rescue from Air Station New River found the burning wreckage around 9:40 pm. Most of the cabin was burned away and the last body was removed at around 2:00 am and all taken to Jacksonville.
