An investigation into the deadly crash, which occurred on Friday morning, is underway as the fate of the sixth person aboard is still uncertain.
Two French army helicopters belonging to an army flight training school crashed under unknown circumstances near lake Carces in the southeastern French region of Var, about fifty kilometers from Saint-Tropez, killing at least five people, a source close to the investigation said Friday morning.
However, the statement of France’s prefecture of Var does not precise the death toll, saying that the crash resulted in “multiple victims.”
Two Dragons and a gendarmerie helicopter were deployed on the scene, as the search for the sixth passenger of a helicopter is underway.
