Four killed, three injured after choppers collide mid-air in Australia

Four people were killed and three others were critically injured, when two helicopters collided in mid-air near a popular tourist attraction in Australia’s Gold Coast region on Monday, authorities said.
Emergency services were called to the scene near the Sea World theme park at about 2 p.m. local time, Gary Worrell, acting inspector at the Queensland police, told a news briefing.
Worrell said the two aircraft crash-landed after the collision. “As a result of that, four people have lost their lives today.”
The Australian Transport Safety Bureau said it had launched an investigation into the accident.
