ALEXIS CREEK, B.C. - Police aren't saying much after a helicopter crash in central B.C.


RCMP Const. Craig Douglass says the chopper carrying 10 people went down while on its way to a heli-skiing site near Alexis Creek, 100 kilometres west of Williams Lake, Monday afternoon.


Douglass says only the pilot suffered injuries and the rest of the chopper's occupants were safely evacuated by charter provider White Saddle Air.


Douglass says police don't know know why the helicopter went down, how far it might have fallen or the extent of the pilot's injuries.


The Transportation Safety Board will lead the investigation into the incident.
