ABC mourns news crew killed in helicopter crash
Members of an ABC news team are dead following a helicopter crash at Lake Eyre in South Australia.

They are reporter Paul Lockyer, pilot Gary Ticehurst and cameraman John Bean.

The experienced news crew had been working on news and feature projects in the Lake Eyre region and it is believed their Sydney-based helicopter crashed in a remote area northwest of Maree last night.

SA Police located the wreckage early today, confirming they had found two bodies, while a search was under way for the third person believed to have been in the helicopter. They did not expect to find any survivors.
