Seven people die in helicopter crash in Italy | World

Rescue teams found, this Saturday (11), the bodies of seven people who were in the helicopter that disappeared from radar screens in Italy, last Thursday (9).

The helicopter took off from Lucca, Tuscany, and was heading towards the city of Treviso, in the north of the country, when it got lost in bad weather in a remote area.

“The rescuers found the seven passengers of the helicopter, four Turkish nationals and two Lebanese nationals, who were on a business trip to Italy, as well as the Italian pilot,” said a statement from the office of the mayor of the city of Modena.

According to the statement, the helicopter was found in a mountainous area on the border between Tuscany and the Emilia Romagna region.

Prosecutors cordoned off the area as part of the investigation into the incident.

“We received the coordinates, went to the scene and found everything burned. The helicopter is basically inside a valley, near a stream,” said a rescuer in a video posted on the Italian Air Force’s Twitter account.

ANSA news agency reported that the helicopter was owned by aviation transport and maintenance company Avio Helicopters, based in Thiene, northern Italy.
