Two French Olympians were among 10 people killed after two helicopters collided mid-air during filming for a popular European reality TV show in Argentina.

Camille Muffat, who won an Olympic gold medal in swimming at London 2012, Olympic boxer Alexis Vastine, and champion sailor Florence Arthaud were filming for the series “Dropped” in La Rioja Province.

The helicopters crashed while flying near Villa Castelli, with ten people on board both aircraft were killed, along with two Argentine pilots.

The reality show involves eight sports stars being dropped into inhospitable environments. The provincial government said a cast and crew of around 80 people were in the area to film the series.

Shooting began in February at the southern tip of Argentina before moving north to La Rioja.

Difficult words: collide (to hit), inhospitable (not easy to live in), environment (area), cast (all the actors in a TV show or movie or play), crew (the people who work together on a TV show or movie or play).
