The investigation resumes in Argentina, where both Argentine and French aviation officials are sifting through the wreckage and gathering evidence. Two helicopters collided on Monday, killing 10 people during the filming of a reality TV show. Olympic swimmer Camille Muffat, yachtswoman Florance Arthaud, and Olympic boxer Alexis Vastine were among the dead. Investigators have yet to determine if human error, mechanical failure or something else caused the fatal collision. But investigation committee president Ana Pamela Suarez is confident that the two teams would find the cause. (SOUNDBITE) (Spanish) PRESIDENT OF CRASH INVESTIGATION COMMITTEE, ANA PAMELA SUAREZ, SAYING: "Very detailed work is being carried out, very professional. There are various international experts here. Argentina has two helicopter specialists and a mechanic who specializes in helicopters and France sent two specialists as well so I think we can do a very good job." The reality show "Dropped" involves contestants being left in the wilderness and requires them to find their way back to civilization. The show has since been canceled as a result of the crash.
