Former Seaside resident Blake Malo needs your help. He is a pilot, and his helicopter went down on Jan. 27 in a remote area near Pomeroy, Washington, while working on a mule deer survey. One man was killed, and both Blake and the remaining crew member were taken to St. Joseph’s Hospital in Lewiston, Idaho.
The injuries Blake sustained are life-threatening, and his wife, Samantha, is at his side. He has a severe head injury, multiple broken bones, serious injuries to his right hand, and he has been in a coma. His medical bills and care could exceed $1 million.
