Monroe County Coroner Bob Allen identifies the victims as William Ellsworth, 52, of Califon and Tighe Sullivan, 51, of Darien, Conn. A third man, Stephen Barral, of Bernardsville was seriously hurt and is being treated at a hospital.


Investigators believe the chopper went down sometime around 8 p.m. Tuesday in Coolbaugh Township, about 90 miles north of Philadelphia. Authorities say the crew apparently got lost in bad weather on the way back from a golf outing.


Ellsworth was piloting and Sullivan was the front-seat passenger.
