    A helicopter crash in Glenbervie Forest in the north of New Zealand resulted in two deaths, local media reported Monday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The rescue crews are working on a Robinson R44 helicopter found in the forest after a crash that led to two fatalities, according to the NZ Herald.

    The police are investigating the circumstances that caused the crash of what is believed to be a commercial aircraft.

    On October 27, the Transport Accident Investigation Commission of New Zealand added Robinson helicopters to its watchlist due to a high number of accidents the aircraft of this type were involved in and the related safety concerns.
