Helicopter crashes in the Grand Canyon

Helicopter crashes in the Grand Canyon

"This is not just the fact that a helicopter crashed, this is a human tragedy".

The condition of the four other passengers was unknown.

Dispatch received the emergency call regarding the crash at 5:31 p.m.

Bradley said four people remain at the scene and have been classified as "level one trauma patients".

"We are in the recovery and investigation mode now", Mr Bradley said.

Gerard Ramalho, a reporter with the NBC, posted pictures on his Twitter account on Saturday night, showing that rescue crews had found the wreckage of the helicopter, a Eurocopter EC130.

He said National Transportation Safety Board officials were expected at the crash scene to begin investigating the cause.

Papillon didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.

Hualapai Nation Police Chief Francis Bradley said the survivors were taken to a Las Vegas hospital. He did not name which company the helicopter was part of.

The Grand Canyon National Park in northern Arizona, April, 12, 2015.

The sights from the helicopter inspired Halvorson to start the touring business.

It said it flies more than 600,000 people a year. "We had to learn how to market Las Vegas", he said.

The business first operated from the Grand Canyon's South Rim before expanding operations to McCarran International Airport in 1997.
