Their three Brit pals Jennifer Barham, 39, and honeymooning couple Ellie Milward, 29, and Jonathan Udall, 32, were all still fighting for their lives in hospital last night.

An investigation will take place.

Longtime helicopter crash lawyer Gary C. Robb represented a woman badly burned in a deadly Papillion crash at the Grand Canyon in 2001.

-Investigators revealed this it going to be a very complex investigation due to where it happened, also hoping to speak to the survivors again over the next few days but say "their recovery is the most important thing at the moment".
