Governor Tim Walz has ordered all flags flown at half-staff today in honor of flight nurse Debra Schott.
Schott died while on duty in a medical helicopter crash in Brainerd Friday. The 58-year-old had spent the last fifteen years as a critical care nurse for North Memorial Health Care. Walz says Schott was an outstanding nurse who was respected and admired by her colleagues and served the public with dignity and pride. Schott leaves behind a husband, two children and two grandchildren.
