Man critical, woman stable after helicopter crash


Paramedics in Victoria say it is amazing a man and a woman were not killed in a helicopter crash south of Bendigo this morning.


Witnesses say the helicopter's engine stopped just after it took off from the property at Lockwood.


Two people were on board, a 47-year-old Lockwood man and his 46-year-old wife.


He has been flown to the Alfred Hospital in a critical condition and she has been taken to Bendigo in a serious, but stable condition.


Paramedic Graham McGrath says the woman was conscious when officers arrived at the crash scene.


"She was obviously quite distressed about what had happened and obviously quite distressed about the other person who was in the helicopter with her at the time," he said.


Police are investigating the cause of the crash.
