The cause of the crash is still under investigation and RCMP say that police dogs are on the scene searching the site.

It’s the second time a helicopter has gone down in less than a week.

Last week, two men died when their chopper crashed onto an island in the North Saskatchewan River near Paynton, Sask., while they were repairing power lines.

Steven Wilson, 55, of Campbell River, B.C., was the pilot and Dean Gervais, 30, of Prince Albert, Sask., was the passenger.


Wilson was a pilot working for Oceanview Helicopters in British Columbia, while Gervais worked for one of the company’s clients.
