Victims of a helicopter crash in a remote area of Quebec, near Sept-Îles, are being transported to hospital by a Canadian Forces helicopter.

Provincial police said the chopper went down around 9:45 a.m. on Wednesday about 40 kilometres north of Sept-Îles, in the North Shore region.

Firefighters and paramedics were able to get to the site of the crash despite its location in a rugged, wooded area.
