The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) is on the scene of the accident as are Company officials attempting to retrieve the wreckage. The cause of the accident has not been determined as the NTSB is in the early stages of its investigation.
"Our thoughts and prayers go out to the families of those on board in this terribly unfortunate accident. We extend our sympathy to all of the families, co-workers and friends touched by this loss of life. OMNI is doing all it can to assist the NTSB in determining what happened," said James C. Eckert, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.
OMNI operates a fleet of 29 helicopters from bases in Louisiana and Texas to transport equipment and personnel to work sites for oil and gas companies operating in the Gulf of Mexico.
