Helicopter goes down in Moscow region

Two pilots of a helicopter have been taken to an intensive care unit after the aircraft crashed in the Moscow region.

An experimental KA-60 helicopter was on a trial flight when it fell to the ground near a residential area. Investigators believe engine failure could have caused the accident.

Aviation experts say the pilots only survived because of the aircraft's efficient safety system.
