13 dead in Ukraine chopper crash

Thirteen people have been killed after a helicopter crashed into the Black Sea. The Mi-8 helicopter was in the service of the Ukrainian Border Guard, and thirteen of the fourteen on board were military officers.

One person was found alive. He’s been taken to a hospital in Ukraine’s port city of Odessa and is said to be in a critical condition.

The helicopter was flying between Odessa and Zmeiny, or ‘snake’, island when it crashed in shallow waters.
