Three people have been killed and four more injured after a tour helicopter crashed near the Grand Canyon.

A Eurocopter EC130 crashed in ‘unknown circumstances’ at around 5.30pm around 60 miles northwest of Peach Springs, Arizona.

The helicopter had seven people on board when it crashed on the Hualapai Nation reservation.

The helicopter was touring the area in Arizona when it crashed.

Witnesses rushed to the scene but the victims were 600ft down in the canyon.

Photographer Teddy Fujimoto told DailyMail.com he had flown to the Grand Canyon to take wedding pictures when he saw people rushing by.

‘Our pilot and other pilots all started running,’ he said.

‘I followed them and I saw smoke. Immediately saw two girls. I could see that they were alive and conscious. They were in their 30s or 40s.

‘A lot of chaos going on. They were down in the valley, around 600ft down from where we were.

‘People made their way down. It was certainly dangerous and a mazy climb down for them.

It took around 10 minutes for the emergency services to arrive. By the time they did, most of the fire was out.’
