A British woman who was badly injured when a helicopter crashed in the Grand Canyon has died, bringing the death toll from the accident to five.
Ellie Milward died at the University Medical Centre in Las Vegas two weeks after the crash, the Foreign Office said.
The 29-year-old had been on holiday with her new husband Jonathan Udall, who died just two days ago due to complications from his burns.
In a statement, her family said: ‘It is with great sadness that we have to announce the death of our daughter Eleanor Udall (nee Milward) as a result of the injuries she sustained in the Grand Canyon helicopter crash on 10 February, 2018.
‘The family are exceedingly grateful for everything done by rescue services and volunteers in the Canyon, and throughout the last two weeks by the exceptional staff at UMC.’
Her death was also referenced by friend Chris Tucker, who launched an online fundraiser to help her and Mr Udall.
He wrote: ‘It deeply saddens me once more to update this page.
‘Yesterday Ellie lost her battle to her injuries, the only consolation I can muster is that she is no longer in pain and is, I hope, with Jon.
‘The continued support to this page is heartwarming during this tragic time. May we never forget this wonderful couple.’
The couple’s friends Becky Dobson, 27, her boyfriend Stuart Hill, 30, and his brother Jason Hill, 32, died when the Airbus EC130 B4 crashed shortly before sunset on February 10.
Two others, Jennifer Barham, 39, and pilot Scott Booth, 42, were also treated in hospital.
The cause of the crash is being investigated by the National Transportation Safety Board.
A preliminary report said witnesses saw the helicopter spin 360 degrees at least twice before hitting the ground.
