    Two men 'lucky to be alive' after helicopter loses power and lands in rough terrain

    The helicopter came down in bush about 30 kilometres northeast of Otira near Arthur's Pass.



    Two men are "extremely lucky" to be alive after their helicopter lost power and had to be landed in rough and remote terrain on the West Coast.
    The Rescue Coordination Centre New Zealand (RCCNZ) received a beacon alert at 8.18am from a location 30 kilometres northeast of Otira near Arthur's Pass.
    RCCNZ spokesman, Mark Dittmer, said the two occupants of the helicopter from Alpine Springs Helicopters were both uninjured.
    "They landed in a rough area," he said.
    "They are extremely lucky to have landed and survive the incident. There was some skilled piloting involved."
    The company will make efforts to retrieve the helicopter, which landed in an area called Graft Creek, Dittmer said.
    The two men were retrieved by Garden City Helicopters.
