Four killed in Cranbrook, B.C., helicopter crash
So far, there are few details about the crash, but it's believed the chopper had two passengers, in addition to the pilot. All three died. A pedestrian on the ground was also killed, confirmed an official with the Transportation Safety Board.
The helicopter went down in a residential neighborhood and burst into flames.
Richard Fairchild saw the crash, which happened right in front of his residence. He told CTV Newsnet that the chopper had barely cleared a large pine tree and "within a second-and-a-half it crashed right in front of us -- literally in front of our window."
