The survival flight accident in Ohio and the Med Trans accident in Mason city have so many factors in common.

same bell 407 (no auto pilot, at least on the Mason city ACFT)

similar weather

both at night

under heavy overcast 

both on NVG

both reported local METARs met company minimums 

both pilots had low experience in winter weather flying 

both flights had been turned down by multiple other programs 

The EMS/HAA industry is A blood bath.
