Maryland State Troopers Down (MSP Aviation Crash)
The victim's in the Prince Georges County crash included the state police pilot and flight paramedic, an emergency medical services staffer and a patient, officials said. A second patient survived and was taken to Prince Georges Hospital Center.
Officials said the helicopter had been dispatched to a traffic accident in Waldorf, Md., about 11 p.m. Saturday from its hangar at Andrews Air Force Base.
The helicopter picked up two female patients and a medical provider from the rescue squad and was en route to Prince George's Hospital Center when it disappeared from radar. The crew had radioed that it needed to land due to weather conditions.
Searchers found the crash site about 2 a.m. in a wooded area in Walker Mill Regional Park. The four victims were pronounced dead at the scene.
Officials are trying to determine the cause of the crash. Col. Terrence Sheridan, superintendent of Maryland State Police, is on the scene along with investigators from state police, the National Transportation Safety Board and the Federal Aviation Administration.

Greater love hath no man than to give his life for others.SI VIS PACEM PARA BELLUM-Ex-Sheriff Martin Howe to Will Kane in "High Noon"
"It's a great life. You risk your skin catching killers and the juries turn them loose so they can come back and shoot at you again. If your honest , your poor your whole life. And , In the end , you wind up dying all alone on some dirty street. For what? For nothing. For a tin star."
Far from being a handicap to command, compassion is the measure of it. For unless one values the lives of his soldiers and is tormented by their ordeals , he is unfit to command.
