3 dead in helicopter crash

Three people were killed Sunday when a helicopter crashed in Arizona, a Federal Aviation Administration spokesman said.

The helicopter crashed in the afternoon in Cave Creek, Arizona, about 35 miles north of Phoenix, Arizona, according to CNN.

Police said that there are three confirmed victims, including one child, but since the helicopter could hold up to six people they are searching for more victims.

Debris was scattered over several hundred feet and nearby residents were contacted to make sure no one was hurt, according to The Associated Press.

The cause of the crash has yet to be determined, said FAA spokesman Ian Gregor.
