The crash was confirmed by the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB), who tweeted on Sunday morning that investigators were looking into the crash of a Bell 206B helicopter in Uvalde, a city roughly 80 miles west of San Antonio. The pilot also reportedly died.

Will Byler and Bailee Ackerman Byler were both students at Sam Houston State University.

The Uvalde County Sheriff's Office told San Antonio news station KSAT that it received a call from an aviation monitoring center about a possible downed aircraft around midnight Saturday. "Will was so adventurous and lived life to the fulled every single day and Bailee always went with the flow".
