Second Lawsuit Filed in Helicopter Crash

Second Lawsuit Filed in Helicopter Crash

LOS ANGELES (AP) — A second wrongful death lawsuit has been filed in connection with a helicopter crash that killed three men during a shoot for a reality television show.

City News Service says the suit was filed Thursday in Los Angeles by the family of 45-year-old Michael Donatelli who was among the trio killed in February. The men were filming a scene for an untitled military-themed show being produced for the Discovery Channel.

The suit accuses the pilot, owners of the helicopter and show producers of negligence.

An after-hours message left for Discover was not immediately returned Thursday.

The mother of cameraman Darren Rydstrom filed a similar lawsuit in May.
