Medical plane crash kills all 5 on board
ALBUQUERQUE — A medical plane crashed overnight, killing all five on board, including a girl en route to a hospital, authorities said. A search helicopter found the wreckage early yesterday.
Tracy Smith and her daughter, 15-month-old Lilly Smith, were among those killed, said Peter Olson, a spokesman for the state Department of Public Safety.
Police have not released the identities of the 56-year-old pilot, a 44-year-old male nurse and a 40-year-old female paramedic, pending notification of next of kin, Mr. Olson said.
The cause of the crash was under investigation.
Bloomberg reports for jury duty
NEW YORK — Just like any other New Yorker, Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg spent a day on jury duty yesterday. But unlike the other members of the pool, the billionaire mayor was greeted personally by the judge and attorneys, was asked for his autograph and was sketched by courtroom artists.
Mr. Bloomberg, accompanied by his security entourage and press aides, was among a pool of about 125 people summoned to civil court jury duty in State Supreme Court, New York state’s trial-level court.
At midmorning, Mr. Bloomberg and about 40 others were called into a courtroom where attorneys waited to pick a jury for a lawsuit filed by a woman whose husband died after years of operating a printing press that attorneys said contained asbestos.
The mayor was not selected for the asbestos jury. Court officials told him to return to the jury room today to continue serving.
If picked today, Mr. Bloomberg would be the second sitting mayor in a row to be part of a jury. His predecessor, Rudolph W. Giuliani, was the foreman on a jury in a landlord-tenant dispute during his second term in 1999.
