ORNGE Faces Charges

Ontario's air ambulance service, Ornge, has been charged with 17 labor code offences.

All 17 charges relate to an incident that occurred on May 31, 2013, after a Sikorsky S-76A helicopter crashed one kilometre from an airport in Moosonee.

Many of the charges deal with inexperienced pilots working together.

The incident killed four Orgne employees, two pilots and two paramedics.
