A helicopter that was carrying three rescue workers going to help flood victims, has crashed into a hill.

According to the BBC, three rescue workers on a mission to help people caught in floods in southern France were killed when their helicopter crashed near Marseille.

The EC145 aircraft had been on a rescue and reconnaissance flight in the Var region on Sunday night when contact with it was lost, officials said.

The crashed helicopter and the three crew members were found near the town of Rove. An investigation is underway.

Sources close to the investigation said poor visibility caused by fog could have been a factor.
