Helicopter crash kills 1 in Norwegian Arctic

OSLO: Rescuers say a small helicopter crashed in the Norwegian Arctic and one person on board was killed.

Norway’s Rescue Coordination Center says a second person suffered minor injuries when the Eurocopter AS350 went down in heavy snow showers near the Swedish border.

Recuse leader Anne Holm Gundersen says it is unclear why the aircraft crashed Wednesday during a flight from its base in the northern town of Harstad to Alta.

Only two people were on board the five-passenger craft owned by Harstad company HeliTeam. The company said both were Norwegian but did not identify them by name.
