A paramedic who survived a deadly helicopter crash in Brainerd last month says fog was a factor.

The preliminary report from the National Transportation Safety Board says Josh Duda told investigators he noticed a thin fog layer during the approach to the landing. Duda said the medical helicopter spun to the right and made impact with the ground.

North Memorial Air Care pilot Tim McDonald and nurse Deb Schott were killed in the June 28th Crash at Brainerd Lakes Regional Airport.
