Five people have been died and two other sustained injuries on Friday (Jan 25) after a helicopter carrying skiers to a glacier in the northwestern Italian region of Val d’Aosta and a light aircraft collided on the border between France and Italy.
Italy’s mountain rescue service said rescue workers found two people injured at the crash site and evacuated them. It was not immediately clear how the crash happened. The identities and nationalities of the victims had not yet been released. Italy’s Val d’Aosta region is popular with skiers. A website for the region says skiers frequently access the area by helicopter during winter.
