Here’s Why A Helicopter Was Hovering Over Burien/Normandy Park Last Night
We received a couple of emails Sunday morning (Jan. 30) inquiring as to why there was a low-flying helicopter hovering over the Normandy Park/Burien area early this morning.
According to BTB Reader Pat Herd:
“Normandy Park and Burien have just been treated to a low-flying helicopter repeatedly circling our neighborhoods and the Washington State Criminal Justice Training Center (WSCJTC) on 1st Avenue.
Do you have any contacts at WSCJTC that can tell you if this was a “real” emergency, or just someone’s really, really, really, bad idea to do this kind of training at 2 AM on Sunday morning?”
So we contacted Sgt. John Urquhart of the King County Sheriff’s Office and got this response:
“Looks like they were assisting Kent Police with a traffic pursuit and then the driver ran off on foot.”
We have no other information yet, but will update this post if we receive any more details.
Did YOU see/hear this chopper? If so, did it disturb you at all? Please leave a Comment below…
