Tragedy in Pennsylvania after a pilot with more than 50 years of experience was struck by the rotor of a helicopter.

Sixty-nine-year-old Carl Enlow died after being transported by Life Flight.

“He was giving rides at the Bloomsburg fair. Police say the chopper was refuelling when the victim walked around to the back to speak to the pilot who was relieving him.” (Via Fox News)

“That's when Enlow's hat blew off his head, and when he reached for it, he was struck by the rotor.” (Via WRTV)

Enlow was a former military pilot, and a regular at that fair in central Pennsylvania, where his company gives helicopter rides to fairgoers.

“I'm sure that a lot of people who return to the fair probably know him. ... He was a very sweet man with a heart of gold, and we really appreciated everything he did.” (Via WBRE)

According to The News-Item, Enlow is survived by his wife, two sisters and a brother.

Fair officials say Enlow’s widow will get the profits from the helicopter rides, and a memorial fund has been set up for the family.
