Madrid – Two firefighters were killed Monday when their helicopter crashed as they were loading water onto the aircraft to extinguish a forest fire in northeastern Spain, emergency services said.

The co-pilot was killed instantly in the accident and the pilot died in hospital from his injuries, they said.

Spanish media said the hose they were using to take on water may have become entangled with something, bringing down the helicopter.
