Park City alum killed Wisconsin helicopter crash
May 12, 2008
One of the three men killed in a medical helicopter crash in Wisconsin on Saturday was a Park City High School graduate. Darren Bean, age 37, was the son of Danielle Bean and Brian Schiller, formerly of Park City.
According to a report in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, a medical helicopter from the University of Wisconsin Hospital and Clinics was carrying a flight nurse, a pilot, and Bean, a physician and medical director of the Madison Fire Department, when it crashed into a forested area in bad weather. There were no survivors.
Dr. Darren Bean is remembered by Park City residents as a standout student and diverse athlete. His parents currently live in Michigan where Schiller is the head of a private school and Bean is a physical therapist. But friends say they still spend time in Park City. Schiller was the principal of Treasure Mountain International School from 1981 to 1991.
Darren Bean is survived by his wife, two children and his parents.
