Grand Canyon helicopter crash kills 3

Three people killed in helicopter crash near Grand Canyon

A helicopter carrying tourists through the Grand Canyon crashed on Saturday evening due to still-unknown causes.

Police Chief Francis Bradley, of the surrounding Hualapai Indian reservation, told the BBC that all six people involved in the crash were from the UK.

The incident left four others injured.

It remained unclear why the Eurocopter EC130 aircraft crashed, a Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) official said, adding that the helicopter was heavily damaged.

Carvalhal, renowned for his colourful analogies, said: "We put all the meat on the fire to try to win". We saw no fishes. "In this moment we are maybe starting to swim a little".

He did not have details of the crash.

The helicopter was owned by Papillon, a sightseeing company that specializes in helicopter tours of the canyon.

The survivors of the EC-130 helicopter wreck were all "Level One trauma patients", said Bradley, indicating the highest category of injury.

First responders had difficulty reaching the four survivors due to windy, dark, and rugged conditions, Bradley said.

The police said that they will need to expand the road blog and send more personnel to the scene for the investigation. An executive with The Kowloon Motor Bus Co. says $10,230 will be paid to the family of each victim.

Mr. Robb said his heart went out to the victims.

Papillon Airways is expected to release a statement Sunday. It notes that it "abides by flight safety rules and regulations that substantially exceed the regulations required by the Federal Aviation Administration".

Gary C. Robb, a helicopter crash lawyer, represented a woman burned in a deadly crash in 2001. The pilot and five passengers were killed.

A NTSB report issued in 2004 faulted the pilot's choice to plummet too quick and excessively near the picturesque Grand Wash Cliffs.
