BOISE, Idaho (AP)- Idaho Fish and Game officials say the third person aboard a helicopter that crashed in downtown Kamiah Tuesday morning has also died.

Two of the victims were Idaho Fish and Game biologists: 47-year-old Larry Barrett and 34-year-old Danielle Schiff. The name of the pilot, who was with the Clarkston, Wash.-basd company
Leading Edge Aviation, was not immediately released.

The Department of Fish and Game had chartered the helicopter to use on a trip counting salmon spawning nests on the Selway River.

But officials say the aircraft appears to have experienced some sort of mechanical failure, casuing it to plunge into a travel trailer just a block from Main Street in the small north-central Idaho town of Kamiah.

No one on ground was injured.
