A GoFundMe has been set up for one of the National Guard soldiers who was killed in a helicopter crash last week in the town of Mendon.
Lives lost in the devastating accident included Chief Warrant Officer 5 Steven Skoda of Rochester, Chief Warrant Officer 4 Christian Koch of Honeoye Falls, and Chief Warrant Officer 2 Daniel Prial of Rochester.
Koch, 39, likely saved lives by ensuring the helicopter he piloted did not crash into nearby homes.
There were a number of houses and residential units in the area of the crash. He left behind a wife and four children.
