Killed, 4 Injured in Helicopter Crash Into Grand Canyon

Four survivors of a tour helicopter crash in the Grand Canyon were being dealt with at a Nevada doctor's facility Sunday while teams were recouping the groups of three others, experts said.

Fox News adds word from the Federal Aviation Administration that the helicopter sustained substantial damage when it hit the ground.

He did not have details of the crash.

The FAA and the National Transportation Safety Board will be investigating.

The helicopter was a Eurocopter EC130 flying for Papillon Grand Canyon Helicopters of Boulder City.

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

Rescue crews had to fly in, walk to the crash site and use night-vision goggles to find their way around, he said. As of Sunday morning, the aerial sightseeing company that owns the helicopter hadn't released a statement.

"Quartermaster Canyon is an extremely remote area".

The Hualapai Department of Emergency Services directed calls to police, who did not respond immediately to a request for comment. The pilot and five passengers were killed; one passenger survived, NTSB report shows. Fujimoto captured this photo, which has been tweeted by Gerard Ramalho‏ of Las Vegas' NBC affiliate, of the smoke-filled scene. It's like being hit in the head with a baseball bat ... and the whole soundscape in Grand Canyon National Park is just destroyed for miles and mile and miles because of these helicopter operations.

Papillon's helicopter tours have landing zones on Hualapai lands.
