Taiwan helicopter crash kills three

Two crew members and a weather station employee were killed Wednesday when a helicopter crashed into a mountain in central Taiwan, officials said.

The Sunrise Airlines helicopter was carrying supplies to a weather station on Yushan, the island's highest mountain, when it crashed into the mountain's north peak, the National Fire Agency said.


The MBB/Kawasaki BK117 helicopter, which took off from Taipei, lost contact at around 8:20 am (0020 GMT) over the north peak, officials said, adding that the cause of the crash was being investigated.
