Two people died and one injured in a helicopter crash

CAMPBELLTON, N.B. — Two people died in a helicopter crash in northern New Brunswick Sunday.

RCMP said three people were aboard the helicopter Sunday afternoon when it got tangled in some powerlines in the community of Flatlands, west of Campbellton along the Restigouche River.

Police said the helicopter ran into an embankment and ended up in the water, but it wasn’t immediately clear if it went into the river or another body of water.

Police said the third person was injured, but it’s not known how severely.

There are no immediate details on the helicopter or who owned it.

The crash resulted in electricity being cut to some 14,000 customers in the area, but New Brunswick Power said power was restored by early Sunday evening.
