Five people found dead in helicopter crash in Italy

Five persons were found dead after a helicopter accident in Italy, according to rescuers quoted by the Ansa news agency on Saturday, while two passengers were still missing.

The helicopter took off from Lucca, Tuscany, on Thursday and was on its way to Treviso, in northern Italy, when it vanished from radar screens after hitting bad weather above a steep, forested area.

Seven people were aboard the helicopter, including four Turkish businessmen working for firm Eczacibasi Consumer Products who had been attending a paper technologies fair, the company said in a statement.
