Helicopters crash in Argentina - level 2

Camille Muffat, who won an Olympic gold medal in swimming in the London Olympics 2012, Olympic boxer Alexis Vastine, and champion sailor Florence Arthaud died.
The TV show is called “Dropped” and it shows how sports stars survive in nature. Around 80 people were in the area at the time of the accident.
