Here's the text:

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 is sad that such took place to begin with.

My heart goes out to the family.

to make matters worst...I bet the opposite party will use this as ammo....sad indeed.

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 laity´s don´t know the risk, the responsability is all of the pilot.

It´s the first great tragedy in the brazilian modelling.

I Hope should be the last.

What was the pilot thinking when he agreed to perform stunts over people??

I normally fly at home and I used to invite my Sons with me but not any more, if they insist it’s obligated they have to be onboard the Car while I fly.

This is definitely sad news…..
