Airplane, Helicopter Collide In Air, Killing 7 In Spain

A sightseeing helicopter and a small airplane collided mid air today, August 25, on the Spanish island of Mallorca, killing seven.

Report said that the two crafts crashed over the city of Inca on the popular tourist island, with five of the victims — including the children — killed in the chopper and the other two in the airplane.

Authorities said that the airplane passengers were locals but haven’t officially identified any victims or the nationalities of the other three killed.

At least one of the helicopter victims was Italian, according to Spanish news agency Europa Press.

Photos of the wreckage, which officials said landed near a farm not far from Inca Hospital, showed a tail section on a local road and a twisted hunk of metal on fire in a garden.

Spanish Prime Minister, Pedro Sanchez called it a tragic accident on Sunday and offered the families of the victims “solidarity and sympathies.”
