Search efforts resume for last victim of Hawaii helicopter crash

Los Angeles/Xinhua: The search resumed on Saturday for the last victim of a tour helicopter that crashed on the Hawaiian island of Kauai, according to local officials.

Seven individuals -- one pilot and six passengers, including two children -- were on the flight, which crashed on its way back from a sightseeing tour on Thursday.

The remains of six people were recovered on Friday, and the wreckage of the helicopter has been found in a mountainous region.

The crash site of the helicopter has been confirmed in Koke'e State Park near Nu'alolo Cliff Trail on the Kauai island, according to a release of the Kauai County.

Multiple agencies have been engaged in the massive search for the aircraft by air and sea since Thursday night. But fog and poor visibility forced Kauai firefighters to suspend their search Friday for the seventh person onboard the chopper.

The U.S. National Transportation Safety Board aviation accident database has listed nine crashes of Hawaii helicopter sightseeing flights in the last 10 years, including three with fatalities.
