Two dead as Malaysian helicopters collide

    Two people were killed when a pair of helicopters from the same Malaysian pilot school collided during a training flight, authorities said Sunday.

    Amateur video that has gone viral on the internet showed one helicopter falling into a wooded part of Kula Lumpur, while the other managed to land safely in a school field.

    The transport ministry said both helicopters had taken off Subang Airport for a regular training session.  

    “Tragically… two crew members had perished in the crash,” Transport Minister Wee Ka Siong said in a statement.

    He said an investigation had been launched.

    Helicopter flying as a hobby is gaining popularity among affluent Malaysians.
