10 Dead After Celebrity Reality Show Helicopter Crash
A reality TV show has ended in tragedy, leaving 8 famous personalities and two pilots dead after a helicopter stunt went horribly wrong.
Two helicopters crashed mid-air in Argentina during a shoot for French show Dropped just yesterday.
“An explosion occurred, and it’s believed that they must have collided,” La Rioja Secretary of Security Cesar Angulo said in a statement.
Police and firefighters are currently recovering the bodies at the crash site, near the town of Villa Castelli.
Some of the dead passengers included sports stars – champion sailor Florence Arthaud, 57, Olympic gold medalist swimmer Camille Muffat, 25, and Olympic boxer Alexis Vastine, 28.
Dropped is a reality show similar to I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! where celebrities are left to fend for themselves and "survive" after being blindfolded and "dropped" into a challenging environment.
Our hearts go out to the families of the dead passengers during this difficult time.
