Three people were killed Sunday after their helicopter crashed in a rural area of northern Los Angeles County, while filming for a new reality TV show for the Discovery Channel, The Associated Press reports.
The show had not yet been aired or announced by Discovery, channel spokeswoman Laurie Goldberg said.
"A production company was shooting a show for Discovery Channel when this tragic accident occurred," Discovery said in a statement. "We are all cooperating fully with authorities. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the families."
The aircraft crashed at about 3:40 a.m. at the filming location of Polsa Rosa Ranch, Los Angeles County Fire dispatcher Robert Diaz told reporters. All three people aboard the helicopter died, according to the AP. Their identities have not yet been released, and the cause of the crash is undetermined.
