Just a short time ago, there was a crash involving a water-bomber helicopter at the Latrobe Valley airport in regional Victoria. The helo was involved in fighting bushfires that are all over the state today due to high temperatures (42 degress celcius here in Melbourne) Details are still sketchy but it appears the pilot has come out if it with only minor injuries
