Radio station helicopter crash

CANADA: A radio travel news helicopter crashed into fields yesterday near Ontario city. The helicopter is owned by the Canadian Traffic Network, which was providing travel news to radio station AM 640 at the time. Two men were rushed to hospital after the crash.

Police said that maintenance work had been carried out n the helicopter shortly before it took off. Both men, employed by the Canadian Traffic Network were taken to near-by Cambridge Memorial Hospital. One of the men was pinned underneath, which meant firefighters had to use airbags to release him from the wreckage.

The radio station started using the traffic program last January.

Global Traffic Network Inc. is the parent company of Canadian Traffic Network. It is a Delaware corporation that, through its two wholly-owned operating subsidiaries, provides customised traffic and news reports to affiliated radio and television stations, in exchange for commercial airtime inventory.
