Helicopters collide over Australian beach, passengers injured
Melbourne, Australia — Two helicopters collided over an Australian beach on Monday and passengers on one of the planes were injured, police said.
The other helicopter managed to land safely after the collision near Main Beach, a beach in the northern Gold Coast, about 45 miles south of Brisbane in the state of Queensland.
Authorities closed Seaworld Drive, which leads to the crash site. The Seaworld theme park is nearby.
The Queensland Ambulance Service said paramedics and police were at the scene.
The Gold Coast region is one of the most popular tourist spots in the country and is busiest in January, the peak time for holidays in Australia.
