A tragic helicopter crash on Sunday morning near Los Angeles has left three people dead, leaving a somber mood on the set of a military-themed reality show for the Discovery Channel.
According to Los Angeles County Fire dispatcher Robert Diaz, the crash occurred at 3:40 a.m. on Sunday morning at the Polsa Rosa Ranch near Acton in Los Angeles County, California.
All three people on board — the pilot and two passengers — died, Diaz said.
According to Federal Aviation Administer spokesman Allen Kenitzer, the Bell 206 Jet Ranger helicopter hit the ground “under unknown circumstances,” adding that the investigation is ongoing.
“A production company was shooting a show for Discovery Channel when this tragic accident occurred,” Discovery said in a statement.
“We are all cooperating fully with authorities. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the families.”
