The pilot was killed at the scene when a small helicopter crashed into an apple orchard in Canada's Ontario province Monday evening, police said Tuesday.
The Robinson R22 helicopter was flying over the city of Brampton when all of a sudden it just nose dived and hit the ground hard, a witness said.
Police say the helicopter was a two seater and the flight originated from Toronto Island Airport.
The pilot was the aircraft's lone occupant.
The cause of the crash is under investigation.
