Vernier said the pilot and a technician died. Searchers were unable to retrieve the bodies Saturday because the wreckage was 60 meters (nearly 200 feet) below the surface, Telam said.
The cause of the accident was under investigation. MTV issued a statement saying the helicopter was working on The Challenge, a co-production of MTV and Bunim-Murray Productions, and was flying to a shooting location when it went down. MTV said only two people were on the helicopter and neither was a cast or show crew member.
