The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) plans to release a preliminary report on the recent helicopter crash in California, USA, within four weeks, shedding light on the circumstances of the tragic incident.

The crash claimed the lives of Herbert Wigwe, CEO of Access Holdings, his wife, son, and others.


NTSB Board Member Michael Graham mentioned that ongoing investigations would continue, with the preliminary report expected in 30 days, while the full investigation could last 12 to 24 months.
