India pair in Vegas tour crash were on honeymoon
LAS VEGAS - December 12, 2011 (WPVI) -- The pilot was a Las Vegas man married six months ago. Two of the others were from Kansas and celebrating their 25th wedding anniversary.
Now, co-workers say the remaining two people killed in the crash of a sightseeing helicopter last week outside Las Vegas were a man and woman honeymooning in the U.S. following their wedding in India.
Friends tell The Associated Press in New Delhi, India, that 28-year-old Lovish Bhanot and 26-year-old Anupama Bhola were married Nov. 6 in a large Hindu wedding in Gurgaon, India, near New Delhi.
Bhanot was managing director of Lyca Investment Ltd., a family-run real estate company in Gurgaon. Bhola worked as a flight attendant.
Friends say the couple knew each other for about three years before getting married.
The crash happened Wednesday in rugged terrain about 12 miles east of Las Vegas. Also killed were pilot Landon Nield, and tourists Delwin and Tamara Chapman of Utica, Kan.
