On Saturday morning (July 11, 2020) a helicopter crashed near the Garfield County Airport. Two people inside crawled out before the crashed started a fire.

It was probably a sight-seeing trip gone horribly wrong.

KKCO has the story on how it is still unclear as to why the helicopter crashed at about 7:30 a.m, near Rifle. Three agencies responded to the brush fire that was started due to the crash after the pilot of the copter and a passenger were able to crawl out.

According to KKCO, one of the two from the crash is in critical condition and the other in serious condition.
