Illinois emergency transport company Air Angels closes

Posted:

BOLINGBROOK, ILLINOIS (KWWL) - The Illinois emergency transport company involved in a fatal helicopter crash in the fall is going out of business.

Bolingbrook-based Air Angels Inc. says on Thursday it has permanently ended its ground and air ambulance units. The statement says 33 employees have received 60-day notices.

Air Angels CEO Jim Adams says in the statement the decision is based on "recent and ongoing events," without being more specific.

Last month, the parents of a toddler killed in the October 15 crash filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the company.
