My first thoughts go to the staff (pilot, hostesses, etc), then his daughters and other kids, then coaches et al. , then him...
I did not know either of the 9 victims.

A bit like that billionaire who used a helicopter to go watch a match in his own stadium... sometimes, like cocaine, helicopters are ways your god tells you that you have too much cash and too much free time. To quote Robin Williams...

He felt he had to take a helicopter instead of driving 2 hours, because he could. He flies despite weather being marginally better than the previous day when he was grounded: he could have driven then already and be there on the day he had planned.

It was not his day.

Very sad. I stopped watching TV many years ago & didn't know who she was but, watching the Late Late interview now. She seems a mighty Woman. Very sad for her family.. RIP.

Yes, the power of media/social media to completely destroy a person is scary.. I imagine she must have felt very alone towards the end.. We all need to be less judgy..
