A helicopter transporting gas rig workers crashed into Morecambe Bay in northwestern England, killing six people. Rescuers in helicopters and boats were searching on Thursday for one more person, who was missing. Lancashire police, coordinating the search, and the Maritime & Coastguard Agency, said six bodies had been found by searchers in the cold water of the large bay within hours of the crash Wednesday night. "As each hour goes by, clearly the fears grow for the safety of anyone still in the water," Michael Mulford of the Royal Air Force Rescue Center said as dawn broke Thursday. The helicopter was carrying five Centrica PLC employees and two crew when it went down 39 kilometers off the coast around 6:40 p.m. Wednesday.
