CAPITAL REGION, N.Y. -- Since last weekend's crash, a number of celebrities have reached out to the victims to offer their condolences. Duke basketball coach Mike Krzyzewski is the latest public figure to do so.

Deanna Rivers' father, Brian, tells YNN that "Coach K" recently reached out to the Rivers family and offered them tickets to any Blue Devils game. It's another show of support for the victim's families.

Just last week, New York Jets quarterback Tim Tebow and Olympic swimming medalist Missy Franklin both made phone calls to the teens who survived.
