By The Associated Press


BRASILIA, Brazil - Brazilian police say a remote-controlled model helicopter killed a six-year-old boy after it hit him in the head during a demonstration.

Pernambuco state police say the metre-long helicopter spun out of control Sunday and struck Newton da Silva, in the rural city of Altinho.

Police said in a statement that Silva was rushed to the hospital where he died from his injuries hours later.

The man operating the helicopter says he lost control of the model. He was not arrested.

It was a very sad day, We are always concerned about safety and trying to show people how it can be dangerous.

People must understand that laitys dont know the risk, the responsability is all of the pilot.

Its the first great tragedy in the brazilian modelling.

I Hope should be the last.
