Florence Arthaud killed in helicopter crash

I read her bio not long ago. I hate seeing such a young and vivasious person leave this earth so early in life.

At 17, she was in a serious car accident, which resulted in paralysis. In 1990, Arthaud, one of the first women to obtain the record for the fastest solitary crossing of the North Atlantic.
