Dropped Tragedy


03/10/2015

Across the entire Zodiak Media group we are incredibly saddened by this tragedy and our thoughts are with everyone involved and their families at this time following the terrible helicopter crash on the ALP production of Dropped in Argentina.

The information we have to date is that the accident occurred during transportation by helicopter carrying members of cast and crew to the shooting location. A few minutes after take-off, around 5pm on Monday, while the two helicopters were flying in parallel lines, one of them unexpectedly deviated from its course and collided with the other. The first helicopter was filming the second one which was transporting the cast. Amongst the victims, were the three sporting personalities (Florence Arthaud, Camille Muffat and Alexis Vastine), five technical crew members who have been collaborating with us on many productions (Laurent Sbasnik, Lucie Mei-Dalby, Volodia Guinard, Brice Guilbert and Edouard Gilles) and two highly experienced pilots (Juan Carlos Castillo and Roberto Abate).

As always in the event of an air crash and when French nationals die abroad, a preliminary enquiry has been opened for which the air transportation police is in charge and with whom the production is fully cooperating.
