New Zealand,November 21:  A helicopter that crashed Saturday on glacier in New Zealand at about 11 a.m all seven people aboard are believed to have been killed, police said.

The wreckage of a helicopter was located inside a crevasse on Fox Glacier, but rescuers were unable to reach it due to the difficult terrain, police said in a statement. They said that the pilot and six passengers are believed dead.

A rescue helicopter used a winch to lower a paramedic and an alpine rescue team to the vicinity of the crash, said Vince Cholewa, a spokesman for Maritime New Zealand. 

He said the area where the helicopter crashed was filled with crevasses and treacherous terrain. 

He said there was low cloud in the area, but otherwise the rescuers had not reported being hampered by the weather.
