3 dead, 4 injured in Grand Canyon helicopter crash, police say

Three people are dead after a helicopter crashed near the Grand Canyon Saturday afternoon, according to Hualapai Nation Police Chief Francis Bradley.

Three people died when the EC-130 went down at 5:20 p.m. (7:20 p.m. ET) Saturday near Quartermaster Canyon, within the Grand Canyon on the Hualapai Nation.

"We are in the recovery and investigation mode now", Mr Bradley said.
