Helicopter crashes on glacier, all 7 passengers believed dead

All seven people aboard a helicopter that crashed Saturday on a scenic glacier in New Zealand are believed to have been killed, police said.

The wreckage of a helicopter was located inside a crevasse on Fox Glacier, but rescuers were unable to reach it due to the difficult terrain, police said in a statement. They said that the pilot and six passengers are believed dead.

 The helicopter crashed at about 11 a.m. on the glacier, a popular tourist destination on New Zealand’s South Island.

Rescue teams reached the scene Saturday afternoon, but said crevasses and rugged terrain were hampering their efforts.
