09:33, August 29, 2011

OTTAWA, Aug. 28 (Xinhua) -- A helicopter crashed late Saturday in Canada's Quebec province, killing all four aboard including two men, a woman and a child.

Local police sources said on Sunday that the helicopter went down around 9:15 p.m. ET in a densely wooded area east of Victoriaville, about 100 kilometers south of Quebec City, capital of Quebec province.

Two of the victims died at the scene while the two others were later declared dead in hospital.

The helicopter, a four-seat Robinson R44, was destroyed but there was no post-crash fire, and it's too early to determine the cause of the crash, police added.
