LAS VEGAS (AP) — A second wrongful death lawsuit has been filed against a Las Vegas-based operator of a sightseeing tour helicopter that crashed Dec. 7 in a remote ravine near Lake Mead, killing five people.

Attorney Gary Robb of Kansas City, Mo., said Thursday he's seeking unspecified damages from Sundance Helicopters Inc. on behalf of the family of Delwin and Tamara Chapman of Utica, Kan.

The Chapmans were celebrating their 25th wedding anniversary when they died in the crash.

Sundance is offering condolences to the family but isn't responding to the lawsuit.

Robb filed a similar civil lawsuit Dec. 13 in Las Vegas on behalf of the parents of a honeymooning couple from India who died in the crash. The pilot was also killed.

The National Transportation Safety Board is investigating the crash.
