Tragedy as two helicopters crash midair in Argentina killing ten people

Ten people including three French Olympic stars have been killed after two helicopters crashed midair in Argentina.

Camille Muffat, 25, a swimmer who won gold in the women's 400m freestyle in 2012, Olympic boxer Alexis Vastine, 28, who won bronze in Beijing 2008, and champion sailor Florence Arthaud, 58, were all among the dead.
They died alongside two Argentine pilots and five other French nationals when two helicopters filming the survival series Dropped smashed into each other in a rugged mountain range. 

Authorities said it was still unclear what caused the accident in the western province of La Rioja near the Andes.
