* * * Two people have lost their lives and six have been injured after a chopper crashed in an artificial lake in the Iranian capital, the spokesman for Tehran Emergency Center says.
The helicopter, belonging to the Iranian Helicopter Support and Renewal Company (IHSRC), which is affiliated to the Iranian Defense Industries Organization, crashed in the Chitgar artificial and recreational lake in northwestern Tehran on Tuesday with eight people on board, Hassan Abbasi said.
He added that technicians of the Tehran Emergency Center and seven ambulances were dispatched to the lake immediately after the incident and carried out rescue operations.

Abbasi said two of the injured succumbed to their wounds on the way to hospital, adding, however, that the other six injured in the crash were admitted to hospitals in Tehran and their condition is satisfactory.
The cause of the incident is under investigation.
