ST. JOHN'S, N.L. — Members of the Transportation Safety Board of Canada have completed their work at the scene of a fatal helicopter crash in Newfoundland and Labrador.
The Robinson R44 light utility helicopter, carrying three men, crashed Monday shortly before 4 p.m. near Thorburn Lake, about 200 kilometres northwest of St. John's.
Safety board spokesman Chris Krepski says the helicopter has now been moved to a secure location.
He says investigators have removed some instruments and components for further analysis at the TSB lab in Ottawa.
Krepski says investigators continue to speak to witnesses in the area.
RCMP said a 69-year-old Gambo man died at the scene, while two others, a 68-year-old man from Aquaforte and a 54-year-old man from St. John's, were transported to hospital with serious injuries.
