A helicopter is trying to land. It wants to land on a superyacht. It misses the yacht. It falls into the water. Someone films the moment.

There are three people in the helicopter. They are British. They are injured in the crash.

People are investigating the incident. Both Britain and Norway are working together.

Difficult words: be injured (have a problem with your body because of an accident), investigate (find out what happened), incident (a situation; an accident).
