Horrific accident involving a park in France

There was an horrible accident at Walibi Rhones-Alpes in France. The park offered (or they purchased the tour) their employees helicopter tours of the park and area around. Around 7pm on saturday june 20th, a few minutes after taking off, the helicopter crashed and killed all 7 occupants... The pilot and 6 park employees...

Horrible, since I knew one of the park employee and the park was closed today while they offered help to the families and employees.

That's very tragic...my prayers go out to everyone involved.

I wonder what caused the crash, exactly?

Wow....absolutely horrible.

Riding once again after 18 years of being too fat to do so!
