Columbus policeman dies preparing for flight
The Columbus Division of Police has announced the death of 59-year old Officer Stan Kaiser. Kaiser was assigned to the police helicopter unit where he was preparing to take off with fellow officer Roger Howard early this morning. Police spokesman Sergeant Michael Woods says there are always two officers in police helicopters because of safety concerns. Woods says Kaiser had an FAA-required physical two weeks ago. Woods says Kaiser appears to have died of natural causes.
