VIDEO: NTSB investigates deadly Molokai crash

MOLOKAI (HawaiiNewsNow) - Investigators with the National Transportation Safety Board arrived at the site of a deadly helicopter crash on Molokai on Saturday.

Five people were killed when the tour helicopter crashed into the side of hill on Thursday afternoon.

Investigators say the helicopter may be moved to a storage facility on Sunday. The NTSB say the investigation will continue once the wreckage is moved to the storage facility.

Maui police say the Blue Hawaiian tour helicopter -- carrying a pilot, a newlywed couple from Pennsylvania and two people from Canada -- slammed into a hillside behind Kilohana Elementary School at about 12:15 PM Thursday. The flight had originated in Kahului, Maui.

Authorities continue to withhold the names of the victims from Canada pending notification of family.
