Mickey Charles Lippy

Trooper Mickey Lippy and civilian Pilot Stephen Bunker were killed in a helicopter crash while performing a medical evacuation of two critically injured teenagers from Charles County.

During the flight, the EuroCopter Dauphin helicopter encountered severe weather and Pilot Bunker radioed to have two ambulances meet them at Andrews Air Force Base to complete the transport. At approximately 12:30 am, air traffic controllers lost contact with the helicopter.

A ground search was initiated and approximately two hours later the wreckage was found in Walker Mill Regional Park. Trooper Lippy, Pilot Bunker, Charles County EMT Tanya Mallard, and one of the two patients were killed in the crash.

Trooper Lippy had served with the Maryland State Police for four years and was assigned to the Aviation Command. He was survived by his wife and 4-month-old daughter.
