I read this on Yahoo! Korea this morning, translated roughly.
Sorry for the loss here.
Gotta be real-careful.

An R/C helicopter crashed to the playground stand killing
an 8-year old girl and wounding 2 others at 9:23 am Apr. 1, 2005.
This girl hit by 1.5-meter model helicopter,
was prounced dead right after transported to a local hospital.
The 2 other students had light injuries.

This incident happened during an exhibition flight as an event for "Science Month" performed by a local club flyer who was invited
by the Elementary school.There were about 26 teachers 500
students watching the exhibition on the stand
when the crash happened.

The police are investigating the crash
which is believed to be a mechanical failure of the helicopter.
The flyer was chared for involuntary manslauter.

Here is the Picture of Pilot
Here is the picture of Pilot and Heli - Looks to me that the kids were at a safe distance.

What I heard in this very tragic event, was that the pilot was invited to do a school demonstration.
