8 Killed in Scotland Helicopter Crash

Rescuers in Scotland have confirmed that eight people are dead after a helicopter crashed into a crowded pub.

Police in Glasgow say those killed include all three people on board the police helicopter when it crashed through the roof into the pub during a concert late Friday.

Another 14 people remain in local hospitals with injuries from the crash. Witnesses said they believed some patrons may have been trapped inside the one-story building.

There were no signs of fire, and witnesses said there was no explosion. The helicopter's rotor jutted from the rooftop after the crash.

Authorities have identified those on board the aircraft as two police officers and a civilian pilot.

British Prime Minister David Cameron tweeted that his thoughts were with those affected by the crash.
