GOVERNOR CUOMO DIRECTS FLAGS TO HALF-STAFF IN HONOR OF VICTIMS OF SCHOHARIE CRASH

Flags to Be Flown at Half-Staff Beginning on Thursday, October 11 Until Interment

Governor Cuomo: "The entire family of New York mourns for the lives cut short in this crash. In memory of those who were taken from us, I am directing that flags be lowered to half-staff."

"In the wake of the Schoharie crash, it is hard to fathom the extent of this tragedy. We lost mothers and fathers, sons and daughters, sisters, brothers and friends, and the community will never be the same.

"The entire family of New York mourns for the lives cut short in this crash. In memory of those who were taken from us, I am directing that flags be lowered to half-staff.

"Some of those who tragically died were among our family of State employees, including Justice Center employee Amy King Steenburg, SUNY Oswego professor Brian Hough, and Patrick Cushing, a New York State Senate employee. On behalf of the State of New York, I extend my deepest condolences to the families of all of those lost, their loved ones and coworkers in this incredibly difficult time."



**When flown at half-staff or half-mast, the U.S. flag should be hoisted first to the peak for an instant and then lowered to the half-staff or half-mast position. The flag should again be raised to the peak before it is lowered for the day.
