At least 2 perish in Haiti helicopter crash
By The Associated Press
PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti -- At least two people died in a helicopter crash between the Haitian coastal cities of St. Marc and Gonaives, police said Tuesday. Authorities found two Florida driver's licenses in the wreckage, but have not been able to identify those killed, said St. Marc police commissioner Godson Jeune.

Witnesses told police that the helicopter plummeted into a swamp Tuesday morning near the town of Bocozelle.

The type of helicopter was not immediately known. U.N. peacekeepers and the World Food Program said the craft was not theirs. They have been flying frequent aid routes to Gonaives since Tropical Storm Hanna and Hurricane Ike caused widespread flooding in September.

The U.S. Embassy in Port-au-Prince was advised of the crash Tuesday and was working to verify the citizenship of those aboard, embassy spokeswoman Mari Tolliver said.

If they are American, the names would not be released until their next-of-kin have been notified, she said.
