A helicopter went into the water. This helicopter was special. It was from a new strong and very light material. It was a test helicopter. The accident happened in New Zealand.

People filmed the helicopter. You can see the moment of this accident in the video. The pilot and his passenger are fine. Their bodies were OK.

This was the first accident of the helicopter. There was no problem before. Experts want to understand why the helicopter went into the water.

Interesting words: accident (bad moment when you hit something), passenger (person who is travelling by helicopter).
