Our thoughts and prayers go out to Tyra Pacheco who was in a helicopter crash today while shooting real estate near Chatham, MA. Tyra is at Massachusetts General Hospital (55 Fruit St, Boston, MA 02114) in Boston with critical injuries. Here is the link to the CBS local coverage about the crash.
Tyra was the very first PFRE photographer of the month winner in July 2008 and is a PFRE contest juror.
I just sent flowers to Tyra at Massachusetts General with the following message (taken from Ethan's first comment below): "Tyra, Our positive thoughts, and prayers go out to you tonight for a speedy recovery and full healing. We love you and cherish you! Love and Aloha, your PFRE family"
Thanks to Ethan Tweedie who told me about the accident.
Update 6/18: That Dan Milstein has verified this site with Tyra's family: gofundme.com/tyrapacheco so it is safe to use it to donate to Tyra.
