DELRAY BEACH, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2022 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — Two Delray Beach men were found in the wreckage of a helicopter crash in a remote section of Palm Beach County.

The Palm Beach County Aviation Unit — known as “Eagle” — found the wreckage late Friday. This is what PBSO first reported to us:

“PBSO Eagle (Helicopter) Pilot’s located what appears to be the wreckage of a helicopter that was last seen on the radar at 4:30 pm today in the Corbett area west of Seminole Pratt Whitney Road.  The wreckage was located at 9:00 pm.  Deputies from the Wildlands Unit confirmed both occupants on board are deceased. Detectives are enroute to the scene.The FAA and NTSB have been notified.”

Investigators updated us with this information early Saturday:

“The wreckage was secured overnight by PBSO and FWC as the aircraft is in an area that is difficult to get to without specialized vehicles. 

Today, PBC Fire Rescue Hazmat team, PBSO Detectives, Crime Scene Investigators and the Medical Examiners personnel will safely recover the deceased.  Once complete, the scene will be turned over to NTSB.”
