"He was taken to hospital by air ambulance from the heliport."
Two quotes from the above article, still there at 17:15hrs 03/03/2014, but will be changed once they read this.
If LAS pronounced life extinct at the scene why would HEMS fly him away from the heliport.. Very sloppy reporting.
Commiserations to the family & friends of the chap who died.
