Helicopter Crashes in Grand Canyon, 3 Dead

Three people were killed in a helicopter crash Saturday while touring the Grand Canyon
Calls and emails to Nevada-based Papillion for comment on the crash were not immediately returned on Sunday. There were a total of seven people on board, including the pilot.
The helicopter, a Eurocopter EC130, crashed under unknown circumstances, FAA spokesman Allen Kenitzer wrote in an email, adding that the chopper had sustained "substantial damage". "It is too windy and it's dark and the area is very rugged".
Bradley said Saturday night that the four injured people could not immediately be transported by air due to 50 miles per hour wind gusts, but state department of public safety helicopters were at the scene.
The helicopter tour in the Grand Canyon which provides stunning aerial views of the magnificent vista is very popular in the national park and the tickets are always sold out several weeks in advance.

According to reports, the place was reportedly carrying six passengers and a pilot.
