The aircraft plummeted to the ground in a pine forest on the island shortly after 11am on Saturday, killing both occupants instantly.

Rescue workers raced to the scene of the crash were unable to help the two men inside the burnt-out wreckage

It is understood the owner of the MD500 helicopter, who has not been named but is believed to be a middle-aged married man with a daughter in her 20s, died in the crash alongside a friend.

It is not clear which of the men were flying the helicopter at the time of the crash.

Witnesses said the helicopter had burst into flames in the air before crashing to the ground, but others said it exploded as it hit the ground.
