Two Helicopters Collide Filming Reality Show ‘Dropped,’ 10 Killed

Eight cast members of the reality show Dropped were killed when two helicopters crashed in northwest Argentina on Monday. The two pilots of the aircraft also died.

The helicopters crashed flying near Villa Castelli in La Rioja province. La Rioja Secretary of Security Cesar Angulo told television station TN: “An explosion occurred and it’s believed that they must have collided.”

Dropped is a survivalist program from France. Eight sports stars were to be dropped into an inhospitable environment like Survivor.

Among the dead are champion sailor Florence Arthaud, Olympic gold medalist swimmer Camille Muffat and Olympic boxer Alexis Vastine.

What a tragedy!

This reminds me of that helicopter crash back in 2013 with another reality tv film crew.
