Two people were killed and two others injured after a private helicopter crashed near the southern Polish town of Pszczyna early Tuesday morning, local media reported.

The two deceased were identified as 80-year-old businessman Karol Kania and his pilot.

Local media reported that Kania was returning home during the night from the Masuria lakes area when the aircraft, a Bell 429, was caught by fog and crashed into a wooded area. The exact cause of the accident is still unknown.

Two other passengers, a 54-year-old man and a 47-year-old woman, traveling in the back of the helicopter, were brought to hospital with broken bones. Their lives are not in danger, doctors said.

Further investigation is underway.
