    Reality show ends in death of 10 celebrities and flight crew

    Filming of a French reality show has ended in a tragic helicopter crash in Argentina which killed 10 people. Among the victims are Olympic swimming champion Camille Muffat and Olympic boxer Alexis Vastine.

    ... two helicopters filming the survival series “Dropped” crashed into each other in the rugged mountains of La Rioja province, local officials said.

    “Apparently, the two helicopters collided as they were filming. There are no survivors,” provincial spokesman Horacio Alarcon told AFP.

    He said the weather conditions were good and the cause of the crash was unknown.

    Argentine media showed the wreckage of the two helicopters in flames on the dry scrubland.

    The sudden death of our fellow French nationals is a cause of immense sadness," a statement from French President Francois Hollande's office in Paris said.

    It added that several members of the ALP TV production company involved in shooting the adventure show "Dropped" for private TV station TF1 (TFFP.PA) were among the dead. In total, eight French nationals were killed, said authorities.

    Just saw some pictures of some of the deceased. So young and healthy and successful. Very sad. How do 2 copters crash into each other like that?
