Aviation Investigators have concluded that human error might be one of the factors behind a deadly helicopter crash in western Argentina last March.

The invesgigators say a lack of sufficient regulation also contributed to the tragic in-flight collision that killed all the 10 people on board both helicopters, including 3 French athletes.

Augusto De Santis of the Argentine Civil Aviation Accident Investigation Board, said there were no technical issue on the type of helicopter involved.

"Really the state of the aircraft, when there is so much fire and with so much damage made it really difficult to find certain clues, some airplane parts that we needed for the investigation where seriously damaged, but we were still able to conclude the helicopters did not have any technical issues."

Amateur video of the crash shot from the ground showed the two helicopters circling each other extremely closely before crashing into each other and plummeting to the ground.

The tragedy happened during the filming of "Dropped", a French reality adventure show.
