Police: 2 dead in helicopter accident in Puerto Rico

SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (AP) -- At least two people have died after a helicopter crashed Saturday morning in waters near Puerto Rico's capital, according to police.

Authorities said the accident occurred near the ferry terminal in the coastal community of Catano. They identified it as a Robinson helicopter and said it was apparently privately owned.

Officials said they don't know how many people were aboard the helicopter. Scuba divers were searching the area.

The Catano ferry crosses the San Juan Bay and is popular with tourists and locals alike who seek to travel between historic Old San Juan and the Bacardi rum factory in Catano.
