The family of a nurse who died in a helicopter crash earlier this year filed a wrongful death lawsuit in federal court.

The Mason City Globe Gazette reports that the family of Shelly Lair-Lagenbau sued the Air Transport Company, the owners of the helicopter and employer of the pilot.

The suit says pilot Gene Grell took off in unsafe weather conditions.

Lair-Lagenbau, Grell and paramedic Russell Piehl died in the January 2nd crash in northern Iowa.
