DOF helicopter crashes in South Florida
A Division of Forestry helicopter crashed this morning in Lee County, Florida killing the pilot.
George Burton, age 48, of Ft Myers, Florida was killed when his helicopter crashed for unknown reasons. He was a 9 year veteran of DOF, a former military pilot, and a father of 2.
We here in South Florida work very closely with DOF in fighting the numerous wildfires here. George will be mourned by many... We have lost a brother.
