Deputy Kevin Blount and Deputy Joseph Kievernagel were killed in a helicopter accident while on aerial patrol.

A mayday was broadcast when the aircrapft experienced a mechanical failure and on-board fire.

Deputy Kievernagel made an emergency landing on a hilly area near Lake Natoma. When the Eurocopter-EC120 landed, the tail end broke off, causing the fuselage of the helicopter to roll down a hill. A third deputy, who was first on the list to become a co-pilot, was also in the helicopter and received life-threatening injuries.

Deputy Blount had served with the Sacramento County Sheriff's Department for 7 years. He is survived by his parents, brother, and sister.
