Helicopter reporter dies after jogging
The Associated Press
ST. LOUIS -- Rich Barklage, a helicopter pilot and reporter for KSDK-TV, died Wednesday of an apparent heart attack after jogging.
Barklage, 50, was found next to his car beside the Helicopters Inc. hangar, apparently after having finished his daily jog around St. Louis Downtown Airport in Cahokia, Ill. Barklage later was pronounced dead at St. Mary's Hospital in East St. Louis, Ill.
Barklage took over the job aboard Chopper Five after his brother, Allen, died in a kit-built helicopter crash in September 1998. Rich Barklage collapsed just a few hundred yards from where his brother's helicopter crashed.
