ELKO, Nev. — Hundreds of people attended a candlelight vigil Monday night in honor of the four people who died Friday in a plane crash in Elko, Nevada. 

The community mourns the loss of American Medflight pilot, Yuji Irie, medical staff Tiffany Urresti, and Jake Shepherd – who worked as a paramedic in Tooele. They were transporting Edward Clohesey, a heart patient, to the University of Utah Friday evening.

The National Transportation Security Board is investigating.
