WELLINGTON, New Zealand — Four tourists from Britain and two from Australia were among seven people killed Saturday when a helicopter crashed on a scenic New Zealand glacier, police said.
An image released by police showed the wreckage wedged between walls of ice in a crevasse on the Fox Glacier. Police said in a statement that the difficult terrain had prevented rescuers from reaching the wreck, but that they believed all six tourists along with the pilot had been killed.
