November 6, 2018

A newlywed couple in Texas died late last night when the helicopter flying them from their reception crashed.

Will Byler and Bailee Ackerman had just exchanged vows hours earlier and hired a helicopter to fly them away from their wedding which took place at a family ranch near Uvalde, 80 miles west of San Antonio 

Their family and friends cheered as they lifted off... the helicopter crashed into the side of a hill about a mile away, killing the couple and the pilot. The crash is under investigation. 

Both were seniors at Sam Houston State University.

The crash is under investigation.
