MEXICO CITY (AFP) - A helicopter crash in eastern Mexico left seven people dead Wednesday, including five police officers, after officials delivered two inmates to a prison, the federal prosecutors office said. There were seven dead, including the pilot, co-pilot and five police officers, an official told AFP on condition of anonymity, adding that there were two survivors. An earlier statement said the helicopter was carrying 11 passengers, but the prosecutors office said two prisoners being transported in the government helicopter had already been delivered at the prison before the helicopter crashed. The helicopter went down in the Veracruz state, some 250 kilometers east of Mexico City. The official said the crash was likely related to heavy fog in the area at the time of the crash.
