An MTV helicopter carrying two people reportedly crashed in Argentina Saturday, killing those aboard. The accident happened as the U.S.-based network reportedly was working on a reality-televison series.
It’s unclear which show was being filmed, but the Spanish-language newspaper El Sol in Argentina reported the helicopter went down at the Potrerillos Dam in Mendoza province. The aircraft's wing hit the water, triggering an explosion, the newspaper said.
El Sol reported both people aboard the helicopter, Carlos Alberto Zarlenga and Luis Marcelo Barrera, were killed, and that police are investigating the incident.
MTV has not yet released a statement about the crash. Updates will be provided as more information becomes available.
