N1 Posted January 5, 2008 Report Share Posted January 5, 2008 Helicopter crash near Montreal injures three Canadian Press January 4, 2008 at 9:04 PM EST DEUX-MONTAGNES, Que. — Three people have suffered serious injuries in a helicopter crash near Montreal. The helicopter crashed onto an ice-covered lake Friday afternoon near Deux-Montagnes, a bedroom community just northwest of Montreal. The helicopter went down just after 4 p.m. and rescue services were on the lake within an hour. Police say the accident happened when the aircraft was flying at low altitudes and one of its skids touched the ice. One of the injured is reportedly in critical condition. The wreckage had partially sunk through the ice late Friday after the injured were removed and recovery crews were trying to determine how to safely pull the damaged helicopter to shore.
