TX - Newlyweds Die In Honeymoon Helicopter Crash (Video)

In what can only be described as a horrible tragedy, a young couple from Texas were killed when a helicopter carrying them away from their own wedding crashed late on Saturday night. The accident occurred near the city of Uvalde, some 85 miles west of San Antonio

Both 24-year-olds Mr Will Byler and Miss Bailee Ackerman Byler studied at Sam Houston State University. The student newspaper was the first to report their tragic passing.

The Houstonian stated on social media: “It is with deepest sadness that we announce the tragic passing of two Bearkats Will Byler (Agriculture Engineering senior) and Bailee Ackerman Byler (Agricultural Communication senior) in a helicopter accident departing their wedding. We ask that you keep the Byler and Ackerman families in your thoughts and prayers.”

Wedding attendees are devastated and at a loss for words, posting their condolences on social media. "I'm absolutely devastated!" wrote one friend on Facebook, adding that the pilot of the aircraft was also killed.
