U.S. Virgin Islands authorities are investigating what caused a helicopter crash that killed at least four people

SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico – U.S. Virgin Islands authorities investigated Tuesday that caused a helicopter crash that killed at least four people.

The accident happened Monday at the west end of St. Louis. Thomas around Botany Bay, said Erik Ackerson, a spokesman for emergency management. He said officials have not yet released the names of those killed.

The Virgin Islands Daily News reported that the Antilles School announced that it had canceled classes on Tuesday because the older student and his family were believed to be in the helicopter.

School spokeswoman Ananta Pancham declined to comment. The school said in a Facebook post that it would issue an official statement about the “tragedy that befell our school community when official details were released and immediate relatives were notified.”

Meanwhile, country singer Kenny Chesney identified one of the victims as pilot Maria Rodriguez in a tribute he posted on Instagram, calling her “a dear friend to both me and our island community.” He added that he had flown with her for more than 15 years.
