Machine Down


Recommended Posts

CBC News - Three people escaped unhurt after a sightseeing helicopter lost power and crash landed in Widgeon Lake near Coquitlam on Sunday.

 

The 56-year-old pilot and his two passengers – a 42-year-old man and his 11-year-old son – had to scramble to safety after the chopper went down.

 

The helicopter sank to the bottom of the lake in nearly 15 metres of water.

 

Another helicopter pilot picked them up after spotting their SOS written out on the shore – and the trio waving to attract his attention.

 

The accident is now under investigation.
