Three crew members of a reality TV show were killed in Los Angeles County when their helicopter crashed at Polsa Rosa Ranch!
Pilot David Gibbs and passengers Darren Rydstrom & Michael Donatelli were the three killed on Sunday.
The horrific accident happened they while shooting an untitled military project for the Discovery Channel.
A spokesperson from the network said:
“A production company was shooting a show for Discovery Channel when this tragic accident occurred. We are all cooperating fully with authorities. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the families.”
Sadly, this isn’t the first mishap to occur the popular filming location!
Diver Mike Bridger died there in September when his heart gave out while working on Johnny Depp‘s forthcoming Lone Ranger.
Our sincerest sympathies extend to the victims’ friends and families in the aftermath of this incomprehensible calamity.

Not even a silly little divorce and an upcoming custody battle can keep Tom Cruise down!
Despite all of the drama currently going on with his soon-to-be-ex-wife Katie Holmes, the actor is still hard at work on his new film, Oblivion, and was spotted yesterday jumping into a helicopter to be taken to its Reykjavik, Iceland set!
Ch-ch-check out some photos of the ride (above)!
We’re sure it can’t be easy to focus on this with everything that’s happened in the past few days, but sometimes the best thing to do in times like these is to just stay busy!
Here’s hoping he can manage to do just that as he finishes this project!
