Four people were killed in a helicopter collision over the Gold Coast in Australia.

A mid-air collision between two helicopters near Seaworld on Australia’s Gold Coast has killed four people.

The nine other passengers on board the two planes were all treated for injuries, according to Queensland’s ambulance service.

Three passengers, a woman and two young boys, were airlifted to the hospital in critical condition.

The Australian Transport Safety Bureau (ATSB) has stated that it will conduct an investigation.

The accident happened around 14:00 local time (04:00 GMT) along Main Beach, a tourist area about 75 kilometers (47 miles) south of Brisbane.

According to Gary Worrell of Queensland police, one helicopter appeared to be taking off while the other was landing.

He stated that all four deaths and three serious injuries occurred in the same plane.

“It’s a tough scene,” he said. “Because of the location, on the sand bank, it was difficult to gain access and get our emergency services to the scene in time to manage it properly.”
