On Monday, two helicopters collided near a marine theme park in Queensland, Australia. Around 2:00 p.m. local time, right outside Sea World on the Gold Coast, a collision occurred. At that time, families would have been visiting the park to enjoy the summer break.

According to the local media, four persons reportedly died in the accident. The “fatal mid-air accident” is the subject of an inquiry, according to Angus Mitchell, Chief Commissioner of the Australian Transport Safety Bureau (ATSB), who did not elaborate on the number of casualties. One of the helicopters, which was marked with the Sea World logo, was able to land following the crash.

Images from the scene of the disaster show wreckage spread out on a strip of sand, people gathered on land, and many boats in the nearby waters. Sea World Drive is the primary entrance to the popular tourist destination marine park on the Gold Coast. This is the region’s peak tourist season, with schools out for the long summer break.
