Authorities state a British tourist who was pulled from the wreckage of a fiery helicopter crash in the Grand Canyon has actually been updated to reasonable condition at University Medical Center.
They say 29-year-old Jennifer Barham had been in critical condition given that the sightseeing helicopter from Las Vegas decreased Feb. 10 on tribal land outside Grand Canyon National Forest.
A UMC representative says the 42-year-old pilot stays in vital condition.
Three other British travelers aboard the helicopter were killed the day of the crash and 2 others died weeks later after being hospitalized.
A preliminary report by the National Transportation Safety Board states the helicopter made at least 2 360-degree turns before crashing.
Air travel professionals say that indicates the tail rotor wasn’t operating properly.
