Salmon-Counting Biologists Die in Helicopter Crash

Fish and Game biologists Larry Barrett and Danielle Schiff along with pilot Perry J. Krinitt died yesterday when the helicopter they were using to count salmon nests on the Selway river crashed in downtown Kamiah, Idaho. “Resident Mick Landmark said it appeared the helicopter clipped the eaves of a U.S. Forest Service-owned house before colliding with the travel trailer about a block from his downtown insurance office in the north-central Idaho town.” Rebecca Boone of the Associated Press.
