SULPHUR, LA (November 8, 2017) – Travis Chiokai has been identified as one of the men who died in a helicopter accident Tuesday, according to a local news source.
Mr. Chiokai, originally from California, was a contractor working on electrical lines in Calcasieu Parish from a helicopter when his safety harness rubbed against a cable and snapped. He then fell more than 100 feet.
The same accident also killed Nicholas Gamalski, also from California.
“Sadly, there are no words that can comfort all the family members and friends of Travis Chiokai as they cope with such tragic loss,” said the attorneys from Lexton Law. “Our thoughts and prayers are with all parties affected in this tragedy as they try to piece together what happened.”
