Shortly after 11am on Friday 31 July 2020, officers from Murray River Police District were called to a property on Carrathool Road, Conargo, following reports a helicopter had collided with power lines.

The pilot, a 34-year-old man from Griffith, was briefly trapped inside the helicopter while crews worked to clear the power lines.

The pilot was treated at the scene by NSW Ambulance paramedics, before being flown to Royal Melbourne Hospital in a critical condition.
Despite the efforts of emergency services, the man passed away earlier today (Monday 3 August 2020).

The site is currently under the control of the Australian Transport Safety Bureau (ATSB).

A report will be prepared for the information of the Coroner.
