LAS VEGAS (AP) - In an April 15, 2018 story about a gathering of friends and family in Las Vegas for one of six people killed in the crash of a small plane in Arizona, The Associated Press erroneously described the gathering as a funeral. It was a vigil and a friend of the victim, Jennifer Hurtado, said no date has yet been set for the funeral.

A corrected version of the story is below:

Vigil held in Las Vegas for 1 of 6 victims of Arizona plane crash

A vigil has been held in North Las Vegas for one of the six people killed in the fiery crash of a small plane in Scottsdale, Arizona.

LAS VEGAS (AP) - A vigil has been held in North Las Vegas for one of the six people killed in the fiery crash of a small plane in Scottsdale, Arizona.



Friends and family of 22-year-old Helena Lagos describe her as having a lively personality and being an entrepreneur who was going to do big things.

The vigil for Lagos was held Friday at a park. No date has been set yet for her funeral.

Lagos was one of three Las Vegas residents who died in Monday night’s crash on a golf course shortly after takeoff from Scottsdale Airport.

Authorities say the plane was headed to Las Vegas.

National Transportation Safety Board investigators are trying to determine if the Piper PA-24 Comanche was overloaded and not equipped to carry six people.

Lagos reportedly was dating the owner of the plane, who also died in the crash.
